Britten: Canticle III: Still Falls the Rain

UNCG School of Music, Theatre and Dance, Greensboro, NC

Tenor Robert Bracey seemed born for this music, with a beautiful bright clear tone, an aristocratic bearing (in the best sense), and a pristine delivery of the difficult and evocative text. Pianist Rebecca Wilt and hornist Abigail Pack were on a similarly high level. This was some of the best singing I have heard in quite some time. In a word: perfection.

Finzi: Dies Natalis

Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, Madison, WI

Tenor Robert Bracey "How fair and bright! How great am I/ Whom the whole world doth magnify!" Bracey sang in the "Rapture" movement. Bracey had a dark, rich tone, a fine match with impassioned trills in the high strings and rhythmic pizzicato (plucked strings) in the bass and cello. I loved Bracey's phrasing, and how his long held notes seemed to whisper away.
