The young (23) Moldovan soprano Natalia Tanasii announced herself in thrilling style with a gleaming “Liber scriptus”, and launched the ‘Sanctus’ with fearless virtuosity. She was at her considerable best, though, in the ‘Lachrymosa’, tenderly but implacably neutralising the despair of the tenor’s “Move him into the sun”, the tension dissipating with uncanny beauty.
