Notes & Reviews:

With performances spanning the last five years, Sounzscapes: From Our Lands celebrates Elise Bradley's first five years as Artistic Director of the Toronto Children's Chorus , and features works from both Canadian and New Zealand composers, representing a true melding of cultures - the Toronto-based Chorus, and Ms. Bradley's native New Zealand.

The music includes Maori pieces rarely heard outside of New Zealand, including the Maori kapa haka piece "I Te Timatanga" (In the Beginning) and "Te Iwi E" (To the People). The Canadian music includes Srul Irving Glick's beautiful "Magic Prayer" from Three Songs of the Light and Allister MacGillvray's famous and haunting "Song for the Mira".

The Toronto Children's Chorus is often called the finest chorus of treble voices in the world.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Add in selections like Kenneth Leslie's 'Cape Breton Lullaby', a lovely 'Peace Song' by Dorothy Buchanan, and a pair of radiant entries ('Ohana I runga rawa' and 'Song for the Mira') accompanied by oboist Sarah Jeffrey, and you get a handsome anthology. The kids are a delight: enthusiastic, emotionally engaged, and more than up to snuff in matters of pitch, phrasing, diction, and overall balance. Ms Bradley knows her business. If you're an aficionado of children's choirs this would be something to hunt down. World music types might enjoy it too.
