Notes & Reviews:

Stunning performances from one of America's top chamber choirs; a choice array of all-American choral delights by icons like Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre and Norman Dello Joio.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
The John Alexander Singers is a professional group of 24 from southern California; most of the group also serve as the core of the Pacific Chorale. Their singing is splendid: a warm, rich sound that is beautifully in tune and well blended. Most of the works here are a cappell. If your taste runs to contemporary American choral music, you'll want this. And if you're just curious, this is an excellent starting place.
