Notes & Reviews:

Voice of the Soul is a metaphor for a journey of traditions, storytelling, and passionate music of the senses. For the listener, this CD experience is rather like walking around a gallery, where the exhibits are musical rather than visual. The voices of the instruments seduce us into the world of each new piece and fill us with expectation. A variable-sized choir ranging from 16 to 32 singers, Voices New Zealand Chamber Choir draws from among New Zealand's best singers to create a chamber choir of flexible size and wide repertoire. The choir was formed in 1998 with Dr. Karen Grylls as its Music Director.
