Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
This is a gem. It's one of those rare albums where, hearing only the opening few measures, you become completely absorbed in the beauty of what you are hearing. Simply titled Preisung (German for "Praise"), the music is sung by Sjaella, a group of six extraordinary young singers aged 18 to 22 years. The album was released by Querstand, a record label whose one hundred releases reflect an adventuresome programming spirit. Containing largely world-premiere recordings, this release fits their catalog perfectly. read more

"They could not be further from any diva-like behavior or the need to distinguish themselves; they are truly diverse because they do not 'just try something else' but are actually interested in music" - these are the words that composer and arranger Ekkehard Meister used to describe this female a cappella ensemble. Meister is one of five composers who were inspired by the musical perfection of these six ladies, aged 18 to 22 years, and thus contributed sacred vocal music to this CD called Preisung ("Praise").
