Notes & Reviews:

The South Dakota Chorale is a professional chorus organization that gathers talented singers to share impacting performances of choral arts. Based in Sioux Falls, SD - the Chorale provides local professional singers the unique opportunity to make music, in their own backyard, with other great singers and instrumentalists from around the country. The Chorale recorded their debut commercial album with Grammy-winning producer Blanton Alspaugh. The album is particularly significant in that it includes the first major American recording of the Duruflé Requiem that utilizes Duruflé's solo organ score. The South Dakota Chorale brings a rare opportunity for music lovers to add this version of the Requiem to their own collections.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
The choir brings its entire range of sonic qualities to bear here, ranging from transparently pure and tender straight tones to robust and full-throated choral glory. The soloists (mezzo Elizabeth Johnson Knight and baritone Brandon Hendrickson) are superb. Organist Jesse Eschbach offers just the right supporting touch from his French-influenced Bedient instrument. Supremely detailed Super-audio sound helps to make it particularly memorable. You'd never hear a performance like this. I do believe I've found a new favorite performance of this ravishing music.
