 Ormandy and the Philadelphia do it again June 21, 2012 By G. Ryberg (Galesburg, IL) See All My Reviews "I still have most of this to hear, but the two that I love are "Swedish Rhapsody" and "Finlandia", the latter featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Rhapsody has both beautiful music and a big, fast, precise finish. Finlandia, is their national anthem, or should be. And ours should sound as good. Get this CD." Report Abuse
