War photographer by Christian Frei( Visual )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The great photojournalist Robert Capa said, 'If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.' James Nachtwey has been close enough for over 20 years -- a time period in which he has not missed a single war. War Photographer follows Nachtwey for two years to hot spots including Kosovo, the West Bank, and Indonesia, as he searches for a picture he thinks he can publish. A film about a committed, shy man, who is considered one of the bravest and most inportant war photographers of our time -- but hardly fits the cliché of the hard-boiled war veteran."--Container notes

34 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part
