Notes & Reviews:

On the occasion of its 40th anniversary Carus has initiated a new series Carus Classics, featuring ten outstanding CD productions from the past library of recordings. This exclusive collection, designed by Friedrich Forssman and Cornelia Feyll, is presented in high-quality DigiPacs and each CD includes an extensive booklet. '... exemplary recording.' (New Classics, September 2005)

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
I really enjoy the performances by a very good academic choir from America's Pacific Northwest. I wasn't really surprised to hear fairly obscure Baroque-era sacred music from them, as that region has long been a hotbed of early choral music performance. The first performances I ever heard of choral music by Praetorius, Schntz, and Sweelinck (in the early 1970s!) were by Seattle-area academic choirs, during my four-year sojourn there. The choral voices here have a distinctly youthful ring to them; but their collective technical precision, sectional balance, adroit phrasing, and pinpoint intonation result in renditions that leave very little, if anything, to be desired. My only niggling complaint is that the recorded sound is slightly muffled, though it doesn't obscure the choir's contrapuntal clarity in the slightest. A useful and complete booklet seals the deal.
