Notes & Reviews:

There is nothing as stirring as the sound of a full opera chorus, and this album has it all: the splendour of the triumphal march from aida, the aching nostalgia of the hebrew slaves in nabucco, the tragic stillness of the humming chorus in madama butterfly, the joyful celebration of the bridal chorus in lohengrin and much more. All your favourite choruses from the great operas, sung to perfection by the chorus of opera queensland.
