Robert Shaw was a splendid choral conductor--indeed, possibly the greatest of the 20th century (in America at least). When confronted with works for chorus and orchestra, however, he could be either very exciting or very dull. Like so many great choral trainers, his concern with problems of balance, intonation, and pronunciation in the chorus parts often led to a neglect of the orchestra, and an inability to "let go" when the music demanded it. Fortunately, this particular collection shows Shaw at his best. Like his superb recording of the Verdi Requiem, the Four Sacred Pieces really come alive in his hands--with the "Te Deum" particularly grand. Similarly, his Symphony of Psalms balances the objectivity of the composer's vocal and instrumental writing with an unaccustomed warmth and grace. Add to this Telarc's excellent sonics, and the results are very fine indeed. --David Hurwitz
