 The best there is! February 14, 2013 By Richard C. (Lancaster, PA) See All My Reviews "This is a CD version of a 1960s recording by Ormandy & Phila. Orchestra. I own the LP and have about played the grooves off of it. In upgrading my library from LPs to CDs I've bought two more-recent recordings, but neither stack up well to the older Ormandy version. So, I finally decided to go with what I liked. This is a great recording." Report Abuse
 Exulting! November 25, 2012 By Sylvia B. (Deerfield, IL) See All My Reviews "Positive perfection...soloists, conductors, orchestras and choruses! Should be in every classical music lover's library." Report Abuse
