Review by raffells January 29, 2006 (3 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
Tavener (1944) is now well represented on sacd by comparison with greater composers.This bargain priced Veil is different from my other version with Yo Yo Ma and I prefer this sacd version both on sonics which it wins easily allowing greater depth and inner orchestral detail ,superior cello tone and also overall performance. Compare 42 minitues to Ma 49 and a bigger acoustic and more intense recording by the seemingly larger RPO and a better more interesting filler in "Eternal Memory" plus a bonus solo cello work add this to the bargain price Then this is a No Brainer..Average notes and usual boring cover.As its an original PCM it gets 4.5 stars.
