5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but maybe surprising CD, 17 Sept. 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songbook (Audio CD)
An interesting programme, including familiar and unfamiliar pieces. Everything is sung quite beautifully. Presumably these boys are under 13: the surprise is in the maturity of many of the voices - confident delivery, beautiful voices - often with full vibrato.

I sang in a really famous boys' choir 40 years ago and we were able to go on till our voices changed (I didn't have to stop till I was 15 and a half). Cathedral choirs nowadays mostly lose their boys aged 13, just when they are beginning to be able to sing intelligently.

These "Songbook" boys deliver the sort of programme which the boys of my own choir might have delivered 40 years ago and they do it most beautifully - and much younger, I guess, than we were. And what a lot of superb soloists!

Hooray for 2011 boys confident enough to admit to being BOY SINGERS. I hope the boys on this delightful CD are really proud of what they have recorded. How sad that so many of their co-evals will assume that because they sing as they do, they are to be pitied!
