The Only Word That Best Describes This CD Is "Transporting"8 Jun. 2014
- Published on Amazon.com
I was a fan of the Gareth Malone series when it was broadcast here in the US and despair that not all of the competitions which took place in England were shown here, also that the one competition filmed here in the US got very little notice about when it was going to be broadcast, on what channel, what time and I still don't know if it was ever shown here. I have read Gareth's book about The Choir and searching the 'net came across the Voices CD. I ordered it from Amazon US and the CD did not have all the tracks on it which was disappointing - I did see some of the webisodes about Voices so I knew there should have been more tracks. Fortunately, I went on to Amazon UK and found the full version of the CD! If I could, I would go to England for a weekend to hear a live performance - I hope that the tour comes to the US!!!!!!!!!! I found the quality of the CD to be very high - and as impressed as I was when it first heard the US and the UK recordings, I was even more impressed by the talent of the choir and Gareth's talent as a choral arranger when I began to track down the original songs by the original artists where I was unfamiliar with them - for example Lana Del Rey's Video Games and Erasures' Little Respect among others. To hear the original songs/lyrics/arrangements and then to hear them performed by Voices - well, as I wrote in the title, 'transporting'....and the version of the Fleet Foxes song (one of my favorite groups) was just amazing. My recommendation, order the CD from amazon.uk, it's worth the wait.
