Notes & Reviews:

"...It comes as no shock that Maestro George has put together a terrific choir. Anyone who has heard them singing 'Carmina Burana', the 'German Requiem' and their Brahms anthology with Herbert Blomstedt on London already knows how good they are. Here, though, they're allowed to shine on their own, and they do so with radiance and a deeply moving sense of 'innigkeit.' Bravo." -Greenfield, ARG
