Notes & Reviews:

Dreamland is a new and intriguing specially-priced sampler that features a selection of pieces from Hyperion's extensive and varied choral music catalog. This disc seeks to give a flavor of the contemporary choral music recorded by Hyperion over the past decade.

"The CD's title describes its contents well; these are pieces that are pillowy in their limpid sensuousness. The program notes makes it easy to find where each track was originally released, which is helpful for listeners who want to search out other similar works. The singing throughout is exemplary, with beautiful intonation and tone quality, virtuosic vocal discipline, and interpretive sensitivity and passion. Hyperion's sound is, as typical, warm and clean with a natural ambience." -All Music Guide
