Notes & Reviews:

Cast out of Jerusalem and Spain, the Spanish Jews absorbed the colorful musical accents of Italy, Turkey, and North Africa, including exotic percussion. Apollo's Fire's musical journey interweaves Sephardic folk song with the Monteverdi-like Hebrew choral work of Salamone Rossi - the Songs of Solomon. The daily rhythms of life - love, rejection, feasting, and celebration - culminate in the mystical prayers of Shabbat.

Cleveland Plain Dealer
Sephardic Journey certainly has the potential to be the ensemble's biggest hit ... Sorrell and company have a new favorite on their hands.

Classical Voice of North America
Sorrell has taken her programming to a new level in a showcase of Jewish music from Spain and Italy. With performers of such reliable quality and a director who choreographs the proceedings down to the tiniest detail, Apollo's Fire always puts on a good show.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2016
The soloists and instrumentalists are first-class, and Sorrell's arrangements are full of zip and colour.
