Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This new disc takes the listener on a journey from the depths of despair to the pinnacles of joy, featuring rarely heard virtuoso works for male choir by Carl Orff, Jean Sibelius, Samuel Barber, Josquin Des Pres and Claude Debussy. The newly commissioned "Two Laments on Dylan Thomas" by Kenneth Jennings, Schubert's haunting "Grab und Mond" and Randall Thompson's "Alleluia" are saturated with Cantus' emotionally-charged singing. This disc is a 24-bit high resolution recording and comes in a sumptuous sleeve, with a beautifully presented 34 page booklet.

Review
