Notes & Reviews:

"...The truth is that Getty is an extremely talented, communicative composer... his music is tonal and tuneful, it is not without touches of 20th-century harmonic grammar, and certainly much of it would surprise 19th-century audiences. Nonetheless, for any listener who enjoys robust choral writing, good tunes, lively rhythms, and ethereal beauty, this disc can be enthusiastically recommended... All of the performances here are excellent... This is an extraordinarily engaging disc, one to which I shall return many times." -Fanfare
