Notes & Reviews:

The new project of the world-famous boys choir Czech Boys Choir Boni Pueri comes with an interesting selection of repertory. The title includes both constant repertoire of boys choir, which is known in Europe and thanks to the US tours, Japan, South Korea and overseas, as well as some previously unrecorded composition. The benefit is especially suite Suite from the Czech and Slovak folk songs from Otakar Jeremias. Production repertoire is divided between the arrangements of folk songs, classical evergreens like Handel┤s Hallejujah or Franck┤s Panis Angelicus and the very successful film adaptations of popular melodies from decorator workshop of Vladimir Popelka. Along with Boni Pueri performs Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Pardubice with young conductor Marek Stilec.
