Notes & Reviews:

"Sequentia's all-male ensemble, Sons of Thunder, and Their original three-member group have together produced this entertaining program of biblical lais. There is tremendous bounce and drive and instruments are used with restraint and for valid reasons. The booklet supplies texts and translations, lucid information and full source references." -Gramophone
