Format: Audio CD
This is a collection of 19 motets, some of them taken from previously issued CDs (‘The Armed Man’, ‘The Peacemakers’ ‘Requiem’, ‘Stabat Mater’, ‘Adiemus’, ‘Gloria’, ‘Stella Natalis’) but in new a cappella arrangements and sung by Polyphony under the direction of Stephen Layton. The other tracks are of original recordings. I particularly like a cappella recordings as the purity of the human voice comes through without being obliterated in places by thick orchestral textures. If you enjoy this composer’s melodies and harmonies, you will love this CD. Polyphony make a beautiful sound and it’s refreshing to hear the different arrangements of pieces I already know quite well. It’s like hearing Barber’s Adagio in its choral setting for the first time.

Beautiful, out-of-this-world singing. For me 15 of the 19 tracks on this CD are keepers...I have bought CD's for the sake of getting just one special piece...and this CD gives me the most keepers of any CD I've bought in a long time. I have given this as a gift to friends who also get carried away by it.

An absolutely wonderful collection of Karl Jenkins' works reworked for non-instrumental a capella polyphonic voice performance. I rarely write reviews for CDs on Amazon because it takes a lot to impress me, but this collection of vocal works is superb. I am a long time follower and fan of Karl Jenkins' work and evolution, and these recordings should be among the first purchases in any collection of his work. Worth every penny of the purchase price, and sure to be one of the most listened to CDs for a long time to come.

This is the height of choral music. If you like beautiful music, this is a must have. One could hardly describe Jenkins as being progressive. He reminds me more of a serious Rutter. The music is at once profound and accessible. I highly recommend this disc.

One of the most beautiful discs we own. Unaccompanied choral works by Karl Jenkins. Features new pieces and selections from other works.
Stephen Layton leads the group called Polyphony.It's spiritual music.
