I purchased this as a gift for one of my son's teachers. It is beautifully done and a pleasure to listen to.
She absolutely loves it!

Shakespeare lyrics to madrigal like tunes! This CD is a lot of fun. The songs are energetic and when you recognize the text they are singing, it makes it all the more fun! It's also great for memorizing quotes if your a musical learner.

I have been listening to this nonstop in my car since I bought it. Now that it's finally warm enough to drive with the windows rolled down, I've been blasting this up and down the state, forcefully delivering an audible work of art to the unappreciative ears of today's wasted youth, hoping to convert a stray 'Belieber' or 'Directioner' into the more respectable 'Shakespearean.'

The startled looks and double takes of fellow drivers at a stoplight are an added bonus.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought the CD for the repertoire so from that perspective, this CD is a winner, with a wide variety of styles and not often heard contemporary composers. Robert Applebaum's work, for example, deserves much more exposure! However, the imprecise tuning of the ensemble bothered me, so I will only use this as a reference CD for the songs and will not be listening to it (nor playing it for my ensembles). Don't write the ensemble off . . . there is a lot of potential there and perhaps they will improve!
