I love The sound of African choirs, but this one does not sound African. It is as though they have been trained by a European choirmaster trying to make them sound less African and more polished. Even their national anthem lacked the usual gusto given to this wonderful song.

Showcasing one of the finest singing groups in the world 7 Nov 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
South African Choral: Songs Of The Alexandra Youth Choir is a masterfully recorded CD showcasing one of the finest singing groups in the world. Listeners will find themselves caught up in the unusual rhythms, truly beautiful voices, and wonderfully melodic songs showcasing the African singing of a choir (created in 1988) comprised of children of all ages who sing in a multitude of South African languages including Zulu, Sotho, Xhosa, and English. Twenty different and memorable pieces comprise this outstanding collection which is enthusiastically and confidently recommended for personal and community library multicultural music collections.

Five stars if you like the style... 5 Sep 2002
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've never been a huge fan of South African choral music, but I have to admit that this group, recorded early in 2002, with some rhythm players added to the mix, has a pretty creative approach to the style. Their songs are original and complex, with dynamic arrangements and swooping vocal interplays... It's a nice new twist on a genre that had gotten kind of static over the years. Worth checking out, particularly if you were already a fan of this sound.
Good music but a bit repetative. 18 Dec 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love the South African sound and this was well done. My only issue is that it was a little repetative and not a lot of variety. Great value.
Enjoyment for the soul 5 Oct 2009
By L. Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the way this cd was set up. It flowed very well and kept me singing
