Overview

100 Best Adagio Voices

EMI's Best Adagio Voices 100 collection, taken from the label's vast archive, includes many varieties of music using voice: solo songs, opera arias, small ensembles accompanied and unaccompanied, choruses, madrigals, and spirituals, among others. The music ranges from Medieval plainchant to works by late 20th century composers like Pärt and Tavener, but it is weighted toward Baroque, Romantic, and post-Romantic repertoire. The majority of the tracks come from releases from the late 20th century featuring top-notch performers, and that were recorded digitally, so the sound quality is very good. The music is consistently contemplative and gently lyrical, so the album should appeal to fans of vocal music that soothes and relaxes.
