Notes & Reviews:

"This is the first recording by the Orpheus singers, and here's betting it won't be their last. Founded in 2005 as the professional chamber choir in residence at Germany's Baden-Wurttemberg Music Academy, the ensemble sings with commendable energy and a stylish brand of charm in this generous collection drawing from the Spanisches Liederspiel, songs from texts by Robert Burns (Op. 55), and several other sources. I could imagine a warmer soprano sound, especially in slower, more introspective interludes. The cumulative effect, though, is satisfying. What delightful songs these are! Excellent sound, full translations, and uncommonly good piano accompaniments clinch the deal." -ARG
