Rainbow Body - Atlanta Symphony/Spano          (5 of 6 found this review helpful)
  Review by mwagner1962 May 10, 2005

I have become a big fan of the Atlanta Symphony. I remember hearing them as only a fairly good orchestra under Robert Shaw (no disrespect, but he was a better CHORAL conductor than he was as a symphony conductor). I can back this up as a veteran of the 1991 recording/performance of Mahler's Symphony ... more

WOW, After listening to this SACD on a number of different systems, I have to say very cool!!!! This SACD, recorded in the magnificent Tabernacle (home of that killer organ and also home of world class acoustics) makes all previous recording efforts of a great choir just top notch.
