Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For

 

This remarkable album, for many years appreciated for its exquisite sound quality in the recording of choral and solo voices- set a new standard in sound engineering.

 A glorious recording — one that has been a favorite among audiophiles since its initial release — Cantate Domino is a collection of religious music primarily intended for the Christmas season.

 It was recorded in the Oscarskyrkan, a church in Stockholm in 1976. It features the Oscar’s Motet Choir conducted by Torsten Nilsson with soprano, Marianne Mellnäs and organist, Alf Linder. Some of the selections will be unfamiliar to American listeners but others will be known immediately, even though they are sung here in a variety of languages, French, German and Swedish among them. The choir and organist perform very well, as does the featured soprano soloist who, in fact, sings “O Holy Night” better than I had ever heard it sung before — or since, for that matter. While the bulk of the recording is choral, there are several pieces for solo organ too; the album ends on a non-religious note with Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas” sung in English.
