Notes & Reviews:

After 30 amazing years of sold-out concerts on three continents, Billboard chart topping recordings and over 2 million CDs sold, the vocal quartet Anonymous 4 decided to call it quits. To celebrate their amazingly successful career, harmonia mundi asked the group to select some of the singers' favorite tracks, taken from among their nineteen complete albums, for one final release. The result is a fascinating and comprehensive collection that contains music from across multiple centuries and musical styles, all sung with the signature clarity and perfect intonation that made Anonymous 4 famous. Offered at a special price, Three Decades of Anonymous 4 will appeal not only to the group's existing fans, but also win over a whole new generation of listeners.
