Having previously owned only Haitink's splendid recording on CD, Boult's offering seems by comparison to be played out on a different level, altogether much more intimate and spiritual. Haitink's rendition is impressive and has the advantage of clearer libretto, but Boult's is transcendant. The balance engineers have done a superb job of matching leading instruments with the overall orchestral sound, and this brings to the fore many subtleties which had escaped me in the Haitink. Despite the 1968 recording, the sound quality (including dynamic range) is at least as good as the Haitink which is early digital. This is nearer to my first experience of the piece, which was a live concert in Bath Abbey.

Though the disc was very reasonably priced it was not in the top condition, as stated it was, when it arrived. I had to clean the disc twice in order to get it to play on my sensitive equipment. The grease, having been removed, makes the CD enjoyable to listen to and sing along with.
