Notes & Reviews:

Chanticleer has a repertoire spanning ten centuries from Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, Romantic art song, Jazz, spirituals, contemporary and world music. Founded in 1978, they are the best selling male vocal ensemble for the fifteen years running. On this recording they explore the profound connection between sound and healing. The repertoire weaves together compositions ancient and contemporary, East and West, so the listeners hear unfamiliar sounds in equal proportions.
