Notes & Reviews:

Under its conductor, Laurence Equilbey, who founded accentus in 1991, the choir is committed to promoting the vocal arts as widely as possible, with more than 60 concerts a year on average, a cappella or with orchestra, before an increasingly diverse public. The ensemble already has more than 20 discs to its name and continues to add to its discography with two recordings each year. The aim is to produce recordings that are faithful to the character of the choir, combining the standard repertoire with the more recent. This new boxed set from naïve classique gathers together five legendary recordings from the twice Grammy Award-nominated choir.
