THE FIVE BEST RECORDS OF THE MOMENT

Venetian Vespers. Gabrieli Consort & Players/McCreesh (Archiv, CD only). Swashbuckling re-creation of what you might have heard at St Mark's in 1643. MW

Donizetti: Lucia di Lammermoor. Studer/Domingo/LSO/

Marin (DG, CD only). Cheryl Studer confronts the legend of La Sutherland. Strong support from Jennifer Larmore. MW

David Baerwald: Triage (A&M, CD/tape). Strange, spooky tales in imaginative art-rock settings. RW

Pulp: Razzmatazz EP (Gift). Yelps and sly rancour - sexual frustration in Sheffield never sounded so good. BT

Bryan Ferry: Taxi (Virgin, CD/LP/tape, out tomorrow). Nine old songs, remade with wit, warmth and finesse.
