Hi there,

Does anyone know if there is a video/DVD available of other performances of the Bernstein Mass?

The reviews of the "Vatican" Mass are generally negative because of poor quality sound and the lack of dramatic/musical fullness. The original performance at the Kennedy Center was shown on PBS I think. The BBC had a performance in 1973 and Lincoln Center had a performance in 1971 which might (??) have been taped.

TIA--Joan O'Connor
VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
