Notes & Reviews:

It's always gratifying to see a prominent European label promoting an American group! The St. Louis Chamber Chorus is one of the leading vocal ensembles in the United States. Since its formation it has regularly commissioned new choral works from both young and well-established composers. This recording features four recent commissions with attractive and approachable works by American composer Ned Rorem, one of the UK's leading writers for voices, Judith Bingham, the Chorus' 2006-7 Composer-In-Residence, New Zealander Clare MacLean and the critically-acclaimed large-scale Requiem from UK composer Sasha Johnson Manning.
