5.0 out of 5 stars One of my very favorites... 27 April 2001
By Nardhelain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of choral music, espcially not a capella music. I much prefer to listen to orchestras. These guys have gone a long way towards changing my mind. The fact that there are 12 men alive that can sing like this restores my faith in humanity.
I heard "Loch Lomond" on the local Public Radio station as I was eating lunch in my lab one day, and I just sat there and listened with tears streaming down my face. I've never heard it sung with such feeling and such exquisite harmony. I went out and purchased the CD on the strength of this track, alone. The rest of the album did not disappoint. "Dulaman" is a terrific piece all around. I *love* the mouth percussion in "El Manisero" and "Diu Diu Deng" - very well done. Other particular favories include "L'Amour de Moy" and "Or'cha Bamidbar" for their beautiful harmonies. There really isn't a bummer in the bunch. The members of Chanticleer sing well together - their voices blend very well, and all the tracks on this album showcase their talents marvelously.
This album will surely be a welcome addition to any CD collection. I recommend it highly and unreservedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Folk Music 3 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I heard this group live and the first song they did was Dulaman.This was the most intense song I ever heard sung! If you are new to Chanticleer this is where to start. All of their songs were thuroughly researched, and somtimes taken from locals from tours to those countries. Buy it and experience their wonder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Percy Grainger would be proud! 29 Mar 2001
By Thomas C. Nagy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Folk songs come and folk songs go, but this collection is here to stay! Vocally challenging, internationally appealing, and clearly recorded, Chanticleer brings folk music to the forefront with this release. Dulaman, an Irish folk song opens the disc with a great flourish. So much so, that I listened to that track at least 10 times before moving on. Every track on this CD is a winner. I especially appreciate the liner notes for the background information that they include. As a music teacher, this collection is a staple of my library that I will draw upon for many years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous vocal blend and execution 2 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the most listened to CDs I own and one of the most interesting. Their rendition of Wondrous Love, among others is other-worldly in its performance. As a trained violinist, I appreciate the precision of their intonation, timing and their exquisite blend. I've got a few other of their CDs and this one is by far the best. A beautiful experience from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely voices! 8 Jun 2010
By Exercisemaniac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard Loch Lomond on our local classical radio station while driving and as soon as I reached home I checked Amazon.com to find the CD. Lovely voices and a nice selection of folk songs from around the world - you have heard most of them but the arrangements and voices on this CD are top notch. I RARELY buy vocal CD's as I enjoy instrumental classical music more but this is a gem.
