Notes & Reviews:

Eric Whitacre has a sure instinct when it comes to writing music beyond any kind of avant-gardism in the 21st century: he is representative of a generation of composers who consider tonality and music's accessibility a crucial feature of their works. The Junges Vokalensemble Hannover translates this instinct into sound with an exceptional level of artistic mastery.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This ensemble does an excellent job. There are 50-plus amateur singers, most of whom have had at least some vocal training. Most are young adults, though a few of them (from the booklet photos) may well be pushing middle age. They offer very pleasant choral sound and admirable technical acumen, so most of these pieces come off very well indeed. I imagine the composer cares much more that good choirs everywhere are reveling joyfully in his. He apparently worked personally with this group in preparing these performances, and he had some very good things to say about them. So don't hesitate; this one's not likely to disappoint you. Recording and booklet are excellent.
