    Preisner & Towarnicka

    Having enjoyed Elzbieta Towarnicka singing the Lacrimosa from Preisner's Requiem for my Friend, I decided to have a look for other examples of this pairing.

    I think this is nearly as haunting as the Lacrimosa

    Very interesting composition. I enjoyed it almost carries he same feeling as Mozart's. I am not that familiar with his works: but will listen to the whole mass later as I see it listed there. Thanks for posting.

    I mentioned the Lacrimosa above, here are two versions for comparison, Towarnicka and Sumi Jo, I'd be interested in any comments

    Hard to compare the two..Towarnicka's seems to be recorded in a Cathedral with organ and alot of resonance as Suni Jo's seems to be concert style with orchestra more so. I have always like Sumi Jo's attack to noptes and phrasing and dramantic quality she displays.. Both are excellent performances..be nice to hear both sing it at the same place and time.....
