Product Description

While children' voices have been heard in church music for centuries, music specifically composed for young choristers is a relatively recent, and most welcome, development. As the attractive and diverse music by the fourteen composers represented on

Review

A CD with a catchy title, "Pigs Could Fly," offers songs by Skempton, Britten, Bliss, Tavener and Rutter sung by the New London Children's Choir. It's conducted by Ronald Corp with Alexander Wells, piano. The first work, "Pigs can fly given half a chance" is funny and cute. Overall the focus for this CD shows young choristers presenting more serious pieces, including works by Ralph Vaughn Williams, Benjamin Britten and conductor Corp. -- The Morning Journal, Laura Kennelly, December 7, 2008

Here's an essential recording for fans of music for treble choir--and for listeners who may never have experienced the highest standard of children's choir singing and repertoire. The excellent program is varied and very sophisticated while offering the exuberance and spirit we expect from young singers in music perfectly suited to their voices and to the child's particular love of all things funny, frightful, and fanciful, conveyed by beautiful tunes and engaging rhythms. -- ClassicsToday.com, David Vernier, November 19,2008
