Dearest Gramophone Mag,
Your selection of the World's 20 Best Choirs has caused me some near-orgasmic levels of schadenfreude. It's nice to know that my feeling about the American choral scene being an embarrassment to music is in small part shared by a few people who happen to be experts in the field. Now if you stopped marketing Eric Whitacre as Pinup Palestrina to sell your mag to the Rachel Berry's of America (that'll be the day), you'd really make my day.
Your faithful online reader since 1998,
PS. I'm fully aware of your British bias. But yeah...Brit choirs are better...still...where are the Russians?
