CD review on radio 3 this morning was about the St Matthew Passion. fairly heavy, you'd have thought. But at the end, Jeremy Summerly said "It's clear that there can be no one perfect Matthew Passion, so I've been gradually putting together my Fantasy Passion. So far I've only got as far as Mendelssohn conducting, Paul Robeson as Christus and Sting as the Evangelist"
Sting as evangelist - vairry interresting. I do liike some of his classical stuff - his Leiermann from the end of Die Winterreise is about the most haunting I've ever heard. Some, but not all, of his Dowland songs hit the spot too. I'm not sure I'd like him in Mozart, though
