The John Alldis Choir sounds Italian. No higher compliment possible for an English choir in an Italian blood and guts opera. The first two acts are not routine, exactly, but nothing of musical memorability happens, except for an extraordinary a-capella quartet, a very long a-capella quartet. This ensemble is a mine-field. One false step with the intonation on the part of any one singer and the whole thing is blown to smithereens. Singing this ensemble on a stage in front of an audience must be utterly terrifying. Verdi was in no way 'finding his way' with this opera. He was there! Don Carlo simply stands on the broad and high shoulders of I Vespri Siciliani and and Vespri unfairly suffers in comparison. It is a fascinating hybrid between his early thriller Ernani and his late masterpieces and holds the attention from start to finish. And there is that magnificent aria for Arrigo in Act IV.
