Notes & Reviews:

ELEMENTIA is a double CD set that encompasses some of the best works from The Esoterics' Season 2000 and features world premiere recordings of works by Donald Skirvin, Garrett Fisher, and David Asplin alongside choral classics by Britten, Carter, Pizzetti, Stravinsky, Barber, and more. Over the course of the year 2000, The Esoterics celebrated each of the four ancient elements from various vantage points. ELEMENTIA is a compilation of works from these concerts, with world premieres and 20th century classics side by side and spanning continents and styles.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Elementia is a 2-CD package based on the theme of the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. It includes a fair number of world premiere performances.
