Liber scriptus proferetur Benjamin Britten. Out there, we've walked quite friendly Benjamin Britten. Recordare Jesu pie Benjamin Britten. Be slowly lifted up Benjamin Britten. Lacrimosa dies illa Benjamin Britten. Move him into the sun Benjamin Britten. Domine Jesu Christe Benjamin Britten. So Abraham rose, and clave the wood Benjamin Britten. Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Benjamin Britten.
After the blast of lightning from the East Benjamin Britten. One ever hangs where shelled roads part Benjamin Britten. Libera me, Domine Benjamin Britten. It seemed that out of battle I escaped Benjamin Britten. In paradisum Benjamin Britten. Seven Early Songs. Die Geschichte einer Liebe. Also eine hochromantische Naturbeschreibung. Und es ist alles in kalte, blaugraue Farben getaucht. Harmonisch gesehen. Die Musik bringt die Ekstase, die im Text nur angedeutet wird, ganz offenkundig zum Ausdruck.
Ansermet benefits from having a distinguished solo team. Heather Harper and Peter Pears had both taken part in the first performance of the work, Miss Harper deputising for Galina Vishknevskaya.
When Britten made his recording, the great Russian soprano was able to take part but though that was emotionally right her histrionic style and very Slavic timbre is not to all tastes.
Those, like me, who admire him in this role - at Berg* at this stage in his career - will know what to expect. However, the contribution of Thomas Hemsley b. He sings extremely well. The choral contributions are very good. However, it may be that this is due to close placement of the microphones in a resonant acoustic.
Elsewhere the singing, including that of the trebles, is accurate and committed. Ansermet contributes to the other-worldliness of this piece by occasionally smearing the string sound and pacing the Navajo Rug - Bill And Bonnie Hearne - Navajo Rug very differently in places than Britten did.
Yet perhaps more than the Berg*, I was curious to hear how Ansermet conducted the early Berg songs. Again, his imaginative sound-painting makes these pieces even more lyrical than I had remembered them.
