Notes & Reviews:

For those who love the purity of chant, for the audiences who are discovering chant (or returning to it) as listeners or as singers, and also for those who are new to the work of Anonymous 4, the celebrated vocal quartet presents a stellar collection of some of the greatest medieval chants culled from its many acclaimed recordings. This special mid-priced release documenting the history of chant, presented in deluxe packaging with in-depth liner notes, makes a perfect holiday gift selection.

”The most striking aspect of this chant singing here is the ability of four voices to sound as one. This results in a loveliness of tone that sets them apart from even the finest choirs and a warmly blended sound that distinguishes them from solo singers. This compilation will appeal to chant lovers who do not especially embrace the ratified beauties of medieval polyphony.”-Fanfare

A mid-priced compilation of chant from various best selling releases by Anonymous 4.
