Editorial Reviews


"Beautiful music, likely to be audience friendly even though most of it dates from the past decade. Ironically, the album you may think of as you listen to these mostly contemplative and serene selections is the chart-busting 'Chant,' that compendium of medieval Gregorian chant by Spanish monks. The sonic ambience of St. Mark's Cathedral, where the disc was recorded, is well captured here and contributes to the ethereal atmosphere of much of the music." -- Melinda Bargreen, The Seattle Times

"The Seattle Choral Company's first disc, recorded in St. Mark's Cathedral, is gorgeous, uplifting, and very accessible." -- Philippa Kiraly, Seattle Weekly

"The endeavor is impressive . . . and is performed well. Altogether, the disc has been carefully thought out in concept and in execution." -- R. M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Format: Audio CD
The beauty and purity of the music and sound here cannot be overstated. How does one describe the effect of a hundred voice choir singing? I don't have the words. The works here are by mostly contemporary composers whose roots go back centuries. The title work is the only piece that has a sparse but beautiful horn accompaniment. The Seattle Choral Compnay and its director, Fred Coleman, are to be warmly applauded. Marvelous. Highly, highly recommended!
