Notes & Reviews:

The nineteenth century was a golden age for choral singing in Germany and Austria. Singing clubs, and later on, choral societies, shot up all over this part of the world. With its goal of stimulation and promotion of German poetry and music, this movement produced a wealth of wonderful vocal music. On Sehnsucht, The Gents offer a broad selection of music from this unique musical repertoire. The album also celebrates the 10th anniversary of the group and is their first recording with new conductor Beni Csillag.

Gramophone Magazine
The 18-strong Dutch ensemble bring to their enterprising programme the essential technical finesse: a rounded, unforced sonority, refined chording and balance (un-hooty male altos blend euphoniously with the high tenors on the top lines), and near-perfect intonation...They are always alive to the sound and sense of the words

BBC Music Magazine
Hypnotically homogenous of timbre, hushed and soft-focused, The Gents clearly relish Schubert's songs of night and of yearning
