Notes & Reviews:

Shaker music is one of the richest bodies of folksong in American history and Kevin Siegfried's arrangements follow Shaker aesthetics of beauty, simplicity and utility. Sung by The Tudor Choir, this recording incorporates a variety of original choral arrangements, including unison singing and antiphonal performances. The accompanying booklet contains full texts and tune commentaries, and a Shaker music introduction. "Gentle Words is another treasure by Loft Recordings... If you care about American music or the art of sublime choral singing, I implore you to buy this recording." - Fanfare
