Love this.  Paul Hillier has made a number of great Part recordings.

I agree I finished listening a little while ago and I thought it was worth adding to my collection. The second last price really reminded me of Britten’s sea interludes from his opera Peter Grimes.

I have long been a fan of Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs).  I hadn't heard about this new recording but am going to enjoy the journey tonight.  See how measure measures up to Dawn.  thanks again

Very fast tempo of suite no.120190703_204432.jpeg.85d59291c5f456b26e380a1fd9be92be.jpeg

Yes indeed. Recently played my copy. It's not cheap to buy now though.

Very expensive now but I pre ordered mine back then so it was good price. I pre order all new release on the suites whenever there is a reissue because they all become expensive after the copies are sold out.

After too many (if possible) listens to Dawn's take on this (so therefore the mental yardtsick.....meterstick????) Ii have recently had Beth's version (and a great conductor) recommended, and then after noodling the net investigating points of view on Boreyko's release of Gorecki Symphony 4 (really love this!) i found he too had led a version with Ewa Izykowska and the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra (https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/górecki-symphony-no-3-symphony-of-sorrowful-songs’).  So from repetitively revisiting Dawn & David as my only brush with this beautiful piece, now there are three and each a different character.  Nice how time changes things.

I don't think I have reached the stage yet where I have listened to Dawn too many times 🙄 that said I was keen to hear the new recording.

 

My immediate reaction to Beth was to recoil but I stuck with it.  Obvious pretty quickly she isn't classically trained but it was so different to Dawn's very prim version I was captivated.  The very fast vibrato and vocal pushing really felt brittle and tenuous and strangely appropriate to the text.  The whole piece was very unsettling but in a way it worked.  I got to the end and felt completely on edge.  I wouldn't regard it as enjoyable at all but it certainly had something to say.

 

I haven't heard Sym #4 yet....

 

You are right though it would all be very boring if every recording was the same.
