Notes & Reviews:

"I wander as I wander" was recorded at Harvard Memorial Church with the Copley Singers, a professional choir under the direction of Brian Jones (who for many years was the Music Director at Trinity Church, Copley Square in Boston). It includes a number of first recordings and unusual arrangements which utilize the newly installed but vintage 1932 Aeoline-Skinner organ. The version of "We Three Kings" is worth the price of the whole disc. (Think: The Wise Men meet on Halloween). This is a binaural recording.
