Farewell World, Welcome Heaven!
Already at the very beginning of this album by the Gabrieli Consort directed by Paul McCreesh, the music notes stab right into your heart. In my case, I've recently lost someone who was very important to me. When you hear the beautiful sound and lyrics of the piece by Gibbons, you will say farewell to the world and send greetings to heaven! And this is only the beginning of this album, when you continue listening, you find a treasure that makes you another person when you've completed listening to this album. Especially the Requiem by Howells is very impressive. As with many works of Howells, it takes you back to where we all started as humans... earth.
Like his previous choral album 'The Road to Paradise', this album is a journey through the ages of vocal polyphony. This album is an absolute 'must-have' for every choral music lover! If you want to imagine how music sounds in heaven, this album will come as close as it can be!more....
