Notes & Reviews:

"Choral music fans will be grateful for Cedille's devotion of its production resources to programming these previously unrecorded works--invariably interesting, often captivating settings of sacred texts written during the last 40-50 years (several between 2004 and 2007) there's much to enjoy here - and, from personal experience I can say that this program rewards repeated listening. The entire production is enriched by excellent sound (from Chicago's Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church) and by the intelligent, informative annotations. And Cedille also provides information regarding the music's publishers - a practice that I wish other producers of choral recordings would adopt as a matter of course. Highly recommended!" - Classics Today 10/10
