I just discovered this Missa Solemnis by George SZELL...
I had goosebumps for 75 minutes !...
Absolutely fabulous !...
Many years ago a friend who used to be a contributor here
sent me a CD-R of this performance. You are correct. In
particular, the Gloria simply explodes from the speakers. No
other performance comes close, IMO.
This included in a 1997 Cleveland CD Box commemorating
Szell's 100th birthday. Long OOP and no sign of a used one
that I could find.
It was also transferred to CD-R by a defunct Italian outfit
that had several names. Their web site site exists but has
been defunct since 2008. musicinthemail.com or
