Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
There's no question but that this group can sing extremely well in a variety of genres. Hymns and spirituals sound very good, as do the works by Minnesota's home-grown composers. So the question is, will there be enough musical nourishment for you amid the parochial fun and games? My response would be a firm no. If a cute segue from 'Bei mir bist du schoen' into 'Beautiful Savior' would float your boat on these Sky Blue Waters, go for it.
