This is one of my first two DVD-audio discs. Some tracks are recorded from the audience perspective, with the choir across the front and cathedral ambience all around, and those are beautiful, but I gotta say I love the, "choir-around the room" recordings a little more. Track 3 in particular has the choir "doubled" with parts recorded seperately with the choir at the rear of the cathedral, a then they moved 'em all down front, and stuck the tracks together through the magic of digital editing. I don't have a DVD-audio player yet so I'm just listening to the compressed Dolby 5.1 tracks. Can't imagine it sounding any better, though. Get this disc. Seriously, do it so you can go to heaven!

Although this album does not differ from any other Chanticleer album in its gorgeous sound, the performances of Palestrina and Josquin are...well, boring. Contrary to popular belief, this music was not to be done at a snail's pace. The Josquin Ave Maria is one of the most beautiful motets ever written and is a clear example of his imitative writing and expression of the text. This performance is so slow however, the piece become a series of nice dissonances and sonorities rather than anything reflecting Josquin's humanistic homage to the Virgin Mary.

This is a glorious compendium of music celebrating Mother Mary, with stellar voices. The clarity and richness of sound is wondrous! The blending of the voices is superb and the ethereal essence delightful.

A friend sent me Magnificat, and from there I became a lover of Chanticleer. This cd got me through many a night when white noise (or is it pink) would have been maddening. Originally, I listened to relax and not hear ambient sounds. But one night I realized I was anticipating each track and chanting in my heart as the singers did. It is prayerful and deep.

If you enjoy a beautiful chorus sound, this is it. Chanticleer rarely misses with their music and If you have never seen them in person, you'll be amazed at this all-male chorus's music. I play it regularly as I sit during a calming period.

I enjoy Chanticleer. And although this is not my most favorite recording, it is very enjoyable, especially when I want to relax. I was also fortunate to get this from a provider who had very few in stock and was selling it at a really good price.

This recording wraps you up in a gorgeous sonority, and I'm only listening in stereo. I can't wait to hear it when I fill out my speaker ensemble.
