Although I am slightly biased, being a member of the Santa Barbara Choral Society, I thought that this CD was fantastic, just like it was when we performed it in the Arlington Theatre. The CD was much anticipated by me, and the rest of the choir, and it lives up to all expectations. This being the first commercial recording of this work, we had no idea what we were getting into. Gisele Ben-Dor really took a hold of this one, and came up with wonderful results! Even for those without an ear for classical music, this CD will show the great diversities of music, and is bound to end up as a favorite. I feel truly honored to be on a recording such as this.
