Notes & Reviews:

This word brings to mind the image of a young swain, standing at nighttime below his true love's window passionately wooing his beloved with romantic song. The image is as often used for comedy as for romance in today's world. Today a serenade need not be a romantic ballad. Whether played by a small ensemble or sung by a large chorus, a serenade is simply beautiful, reflective music. Yet, there is something charming in the image of a love-struck balladeer singing to win his beloved's heart. In this vein we offer a wide variety of music, sung from a distance, but all with one goal: to move and to win the listener's heart.

"Two things characterize each of these 16 choral works: rich textures and full-bodied harmonies, both of which more or less define the justly famous, signature sound of the 200-plus male voices of the Turtle Creek Chorale... this is an ensemble that makes its mark with sheer size and the abundant, beautiful, shimmering sound it creates as well as through the always intelligently chosen repertoire, which is invariably delivered with precision, clear diction, sincerity, and joy... these are well-thought-out, deliberate choices by the recording's producers, consistent with past productions, and fans of this celebrated choir will not object." -Classics Today
