Notes & Reviews:

Kairos - A Consort of Singers offers a program of choral music by composers living and working in the Hudson Valley region of New York State. Kairos is considered by many to be the premiere vocal ensemble of the region and is a select vocal ensemble dedicated to the performance of unaccompanied choral literal. The group is Artist-in-Residence at Holy Cross Monastery and performs throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This energetic, emotionally engaged choir sings like they own the music - which they sort of do, having commissioned many of the works. The women can sound pointed and shrill in animated passages. The engineering creates a close, vivid choral sound that makes for some excitement.
