Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
...With only eight singers, and several of the works sung by a portion of that number, each voice is very exposed. Singers must perform flawlessly, as they do here, both as soloist and as part of the ensemble. It's a pleasure to be treated to such clear and gorgeous singing.... read more ...

Following the success of Ceremony of Carols, Etherea Vocal Ensemble's stunning debut album, Delos lost no time in producing their second effort. Containing several premiere performances, this CD is an enchanting mix of mostly uncommon works for female choir by Holst, Beach, Rheinberger, Mendelssohn and Rossini. While all of these works are standouts among the limited female choir rep, Holst's third group of Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda and the Two Eastern Pictures are particularly exotic, and ripe for rediscovery.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The Etheria Vocal Ensemble is a group of seven female singers augmented by countertenor Derek Greten-Harrison, who also serves as Artistic Director. They sing exquisitely in this lovely program that straddles the line between the sacred and the secular. Novelty is afoot as well, as these are "world premiere recordings" of Amy Beach's Shakespeare Choruses, Joseph Rheinberger's 6 Songs, and the original French version of Rossini's 3 Choeurs. Informative and engaging notes by ARG's own Lindsay Koob will keep you apprised of all that's going on. The engineering is excellent. Texts and translations.
