Impeccable ensemble is evident throughout the disc, and this is especially impressive when accomplished within various well-judged slow tempi.Read more ›
Judging by the results that these performances display, this is a fresh and exciting move -It is by no means easy to achieve this standard of music making throughout an entire disc. It exhibits all of the groups talents, the opening track (Libera nos I, Sheppard) setting the disc up with its brilliant contrasts of ethereal and radiant singing.
Aside from the music, it's encouraging to see that members of the group work hard behind the scenes, creating performing editions, putting together the programmes and writing the (excellent) sleeve notes. Just a quick look at their website (I'm not allowed to mention it here, but it's easily findable on the net!) reveals the full gamut of the abilities that these talented young singers possess.
This is a truly extraordinary disc, full of singing of the highest order. Words don't really do justice to the expressive and colourful delights contained within. Highly recommended.
