Notes & Reviews:

With their unique sound and broad repertoire ranging from medieval chansons to pop, The Gents, led by Peter Kijkstra, are fast becoming one of the world's top vocal ensembles. Their first two recordings for Channel Classics have been met with high critical acclaim. "The Gents produce a highly polished, rich and smooth sound, with impeccable intonation, and ensemble, that makes even the most familiar works sound fresh and full of new meaning." -International Record Review
