Very smart clean vinyl with a nice gloss cover. Includes lyric sheet.

It has been said that all the great composers spent their lives trying to reach heaven, but that Mozart came from there. Well, in the "Vesperae Solennes De Confessore", Mozart takes the liberty of escorting us there. And as we sublunars stand inside, privileged, under that magnificent vault listening to the music of the heavenly spheres - his music! - we are increasingly rendered awestruck and by the end of "Laudate pueri", mute as well. Understanding our condition, he then leads us to a small anteroom of heaven to listen to a choir of angels sing the "Laudate Dominum" before escorting us back through the gates to the music of the "Magnificat". Davis and Te Kanawa take us on this journey. It is a magnificent recording!
