To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was fascinated by the extremes of opinion about this CD, and I can see why. The quality of the singing is superb, and if any one of the works were heard as a one-off it would undoubtedly impress. However it is almost too perfect, too formulaic and lacking in individuality. The acoustics are coloured by the church settings, with the monastic "feel" that they impart throughout the CD. Beautiful, but too much for one sitting. Listen to one track, then come back to it a week later for another one, and so on.
