 Disappointing January 14, 2015 By Donald B. (Paradise, PA) See All My Reviews "I have heard only the sound samples, and so the value of this review is severely limited. The forces sound small. The choir gives the impression of consisting of 8 to 12 voices altogether. The supporting organ sound is muffled, and it is difficult to tell if there is any orchestra at all." Report Abuse
