Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
I listened to this often for amusement and for the beautiful singing, not sure that it's really American Record Guide material. Then I finally realized that our readers might enjoy some light entertainment as well as I did - and would also appreciate the excellence of this group, which we usually hear in renaissance music.
