Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul Anka, Carl Michael Bellman, Gregorian chant, Lennon & McCartney, Cole Porter, Henry Purcell, Stephen Sondheim, Piotr Tchaikovsky, Giuseppe Verdi and the symphony in four movements by Danilesson & Sund for narrator, vocal soloists, piano, drums, triangle and male choir with its famous Tempo di Hambo third movement. What, one might ask, is this illustrious choir from the ancient university of Uppsala up to? Glanced at, while inspecting the wares in a record store, the list of contents might occasion a mild sense of consernation if not worse - crossover taken to hitherto undreamed of lengths. This is the fourth volume in a series of disc documenting the Caprices - the ever popular pre-Christmas entertainments that Orphei Read more Drängar started in 1926. This disc surely offers never-to-be-forgotten opportunities for truly sybaritic musical enjoyment.
