Ed Lyon, David Wilson-Johnson, Mireille Delunsch, Masahi Tsuji and William Dazeley are the soloists in this excellent performance of Berlioz’s oratorio based on the childhood of Christ. In this work Berlioz shows a seldom seen side of his personality, choosing to tell his story using an appropriately simple, almost naïve musical structure, rather than the huge forces and fanfares so common to his other compositions. Glorious performances all round under the baton of choral expert, Ivor Bolton.
