[Highly rated reviewer]It's how I would have made a film, but, then, I'm not a film director. The music speaks for itself, sublime, but the camerawork is quite boring, and sadly unimaginative.
Heavenly music.By Doug48 (2 reviews) , 14 Mar 2012For lovers of Choral Music particularly devotees of the lovely sound of boys' voices such as are heard in English Cathedrals, this DVD must rate as .....absolutely superb!
The anthems sung are wide and varied in their selection and the filming as well as the music quality beautifully done with close ups of the members of the choir of St John's College Cambridge,both of the boy choristers and the gentlemen of the choir, but also many interesting shots of the organist as he accompanies them.
I can thoroughly recommend this DVD to anyone although it does help if you are someone who accepts the Christian nature of the material and the background of a Cambridge College chapel in which the recording takes place.
For me......WONDERFUL. If only the other cathedrals around England with their own superb choirs would follow the example of St Johns College and produce similar DVD's of their singing.....what a treasure we would have!
