Berlioz’s Te Deum

In the softer, surprisingly intimate hymnal sections, [Sir Colin Davis] drew from the [Tanglewood Festival Chorus] a warm and handsomely blended tone. At the other extreme, the climaxes sounded satisfyingly full, drenching the hall with sound but never overpowering the space. Organist John Finney gave a particularly elegant introduction to the “Tibi omnes” movement, and tenor soloist Matthew Polenzani was lyrically fluid.
