A nice compilation

"In spite of a few negative points, it's a nice and moving compilation of popular spiritual and classical pieces which is a useful addition to my classical DVD collection. Unfortunately the pleasure is marred slightly by the picture quality being barely VHS standard let alone DVD. Because the Dolby Surround is not very effective, I switched my Yamaha 595A to "Movie Theatre" which greatly improved the surround effect. I then realised that there was an obtrusive and annoying mains hum due to microphone pickup that was noticeable between items coming mainly from the rear speakers. Eventually I found that the Movie Theatre setting was actually accentuating the noise. Changing to the Mono Movie setting proved to be the best, although the noise was still there. The cover shows that there should be 13 tracks when actually there are 14! If you like this type of music, then it's worth having in spite of these negative points. If it wasn't for the mains hum, I would have given a higher rating."

"I think I might have got a defect product. In addition of the poor picture and sound quality as mentioned by the earlier reviewer, my DVD also shows "blocks" during some scenes and sometimes the sound got distorted and even paused. Very annoying. Though Caballe is out of her prime anyway. By the way, this series's sound all seem to be bad. I also have the Jose Cura version, which I think the sound is even worse."
