It's been a long time since I last heard the Vienna Boys Choir, so I tried to keep an open mind about this disc. No use: I didn't like their sound then, and I don't like it now. This CD might be enjoyable if you saw and enjoyed the documentary film for which it is the soundtrack, but it's a jumble of stuff that doesn't make a whole lot of sense otherwise. (It's also hard to tell from the booklet what the film is actually about.) The boys sing in half a dozen languages--maybe their Arabic is good, but their Latin is still pronounced in the Germanic style, which is totally inappropriate for Vivaldi. (Despite the various locations cited, all the music was recorded in Austria.) If you are a fan, or are just curious about one of the oldest choirs in the world, the film itself is readily available on DVD.
