E-PS Gets It Right

Yes, it certainly is the best C major chord all music, even when Judit bags the high C. *

Although, you know, the one at "And ... there was LIGHT," in The Creation is pretty good too.

*The link is to the great - and I mean great - 1950 recording conducted by Janos Ferencsik, with Mihaly Szekely and Klara Palankay, inferior sound and all. Unfortunately, I cannot find this moment with Christa Ludwig, who could take your head off with a fantastic C.
