Notes & Reviews:

"It's nice to have a Samuel Barber choral anthology, because he wrote exceptionally well for the voice, and everything here deserves to be heard. Naxos fills a need. The Australian choir sings accurately and energetically, especially in animated selections like 'A Stopwatch and an Ordnance Map', where male voices and three timpani describe the grim, haunting death of a soldier in the Spanish Civil War." -ARG
