Notes & Reviews:

"...just songs!" is the title of the Singphoniker's newest concept album. This top German vocal ensemble presents an enticing, brilliant and completely conclusive musical still-life. The rich alternation among the various musical spheres unfolds a very special pull: from the first to the last of the 23 specially chosen songs.

"German vocal sextet Die Singphoniker celebrated its 30th anniversary with the release of this breezy collection, featuring its trademark mix of Renaissance vocal pieces and popular song arrangements, and the group has never been in better form. If you're not familiar with Die Singphoniker, its in the vein of Britain's King's Singers, offering a mixture of Renaissance vocal music and popular-song arrangements. But it's at once a bit more stolid and a bit more daring, which is the source of the group's considerable appeal... The fundamentals in the Renaissance pieces are never neglected, and the engineering from the studios of Bavarian Radio lives up to Oehms' usual impeccable standards. The end result: a hugely entertaining and supremely musical release." -All Music Guide

American Record Guide
Oehms gives us nice warm sound and a booklet that tells and translates all... this one's a keeper.
