5.0 out of 5 stars Best of American Choral Singing! February 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD could be the cornerstone of your choral music library! Wonderful performances of all of the essential choral pieces give a wonderful introduction to choral music for someone new to it, and also give a nice sampler of the best pieces for someone already familiar with the music. Listening to each excerpt may inspire you to purchase the entire work!
As you would expect of performances by Robert Shaw's groups, these performances are really extraordinary and show the best of American choral singing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Music once you find the right track! April 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Excellent imaging and sound quality on all tracks. HOWEVER, the Amazon listing, the CD case, and the CD all list 17 tracks. Your player may only show 13. This is also correct. IF you look at the grouping on the CD case, you will see Tracks 1&2 are grouped. So are tracks 5,6,7&8. With this in mind, all tracks are in order, but what your player shows as track 2 is 3 on the CD. What shows as track 4 is actually tracks 5-8, and everything from there on out is fine, just 4 numbers behind: Track 9 will show up as 5, 10 as 6, etc. So if you want to hear the Hallelujah Chorus, go to track 7, not track 11.

It is a great sounding set of Highlights for those who want that kind of album, and if your rip it, you only have to correct your catalog listing once. It just would be nice if this had been mentioned on the Telarc notes!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good album, but-- December 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The three stars I have given this album are not for the performances, which are all tremendous and deserve five stars or more, but for the idea of releasing this sort of compilation. Every single one of these selections is part of a larger Shaw-recorded work already released by Telarc, and you are far better off seeking the complete recordings that all these pieces are from, than just buying a mere "sampler". (Shaw, however, never did get around to recording the complete " L' Enfance du Christ".) Of course, that can be very expensive for some people, and if one cannot afford all those recordings, I suppose this is the next best thing. One can't shake off the feeling, however, that because Shaw is no longer with us, Telarc is desperately trying to give the impression that "new" Shaw recordings are constantly being released by them, when the truth is that nearly all the new ones are mere recyclings. (The last complete Robert Shaw album released by Telarc was Dvorak's "Stabat Mater", a CD well worth buying.)

5.0 out of 5 stars I made my son listen to it !!! July 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A wonderful album. I have several copies of Handel's Messiah, but the performance of the Hallelujah Chorus by Robert Shaw's singers is exceptional, outstanding. I was inspired to have my young son listen to this album: Verdi's "Dies Irae", Orff's "O Fortuna", and Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus".

Notice that there are 3 versions of "Dies Irae" on this album. It's nice to hear others. I am not normally a fan of Requiems. I will say that I do like Bach's Mass in B Minor and the Kyrie Eleison excerpted here is beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice review October 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was purchased to give my daughters an opportunity to hear a variety of choral compositions since she is thinking about a serious pursuit of vocal music. We appreciated the variety of the pieces and will probably purchase additional CD's based on our favorites from this one. The girls demanded to hear more from certain pieces!

I found the music to be tastefully done and a welcomed break from the pop the childen listen to on the radio. (Granted, my children have been exposed to classical music since they were babies so don't think this will work for every child!)
