Notes & Reviews:

Missouri-based choir Kantorei of Kansas City and their director Chris Munce return to Resonus Classics with a recording of carols and motets for Christmas. With a compelling program of Renaissance and contemporary works for the festive season that presents the journey to Bethlehem and through the Christmas story, Kantorei explores rarely heard works by sixteenth- and seventeenth-century composers such as Giovanni Bassano, Melchior Vulpius, Jakob Reiner and Blasius Amon combined with contemporary composers including Matthew Culloton, Ivo Antognini, R. Douglas Helvering and Kim Andre Arnesen among others. "... electric, exciting, and offering a new vision... " (KCMetropolis) "I enjoyed hearing this album; that the quality of the performances, booklet notes and recording all contributed to that enjoyment." (MusicWeb International)
