Well folks this is an interesting product... Everything on labels & packaging leads even the sellers to believe that there is choral music on the disc. Not so! The disc is actually orchestral...not a voice to be heard. This problem will, no doubt, affect all discs produced. I have returned this disc & the seller has gratiously returned my money. I would recommend that no one purchase this disc until the manufacturer corrects this problem.

This recital as performed by the Elora Festival Singers of Canada conducted by Noel Edison is a superb one. The lyrics dictate the mood of each piece as they should, and the lighter works become immediately endearing. But for this listener it is the big works that make the deepest impact - Her Sacred Spirit Soars does indeed soar with lines of harmonic interest superimposed on each other until the work nearly explodes in beauty. The single excerpt from the 3 Songs of Faith (i thank you God for most this amazing day - ee cummings) weaves a sell that once heard cannot be forgotten.
In trying times such as we are living at present, this collection of choral works by Eric Whitacre offer as much solace as any music we could keep close by. He, and his music, are gifts. Grady Harp, October 11
