Quite a bit of spectacle, rough and unhewn. At times devastatingly beautiful, but also rawness that assaults the ear in more than one way. Do not look for sophisticated interpretations, for all the bad God allows is used to the full in this recording of the Carmina Burana. Some of the stuff I liked, but I also had moments of disgust. So it's a challenge and a tumultuous ride. All participants did their worse for the sake of the message I guess. So put on rags and do not wash yourself for a month, muddle around in dirt and try your vocals in this experiment. I am sure you will have feelings of disgust and joy at the same time. Sound is good.
