'This is an entreprising disc from Chandos, which has reached out a long arm to bring in an accomplished Americaan choir. Everything here is likeable both as composition and as performance.'

'great intelligence and sensitivity with snug part-singing, buoyant rhythms, and a tone that shifts easily from deepest gloom to gleaming light.

Where has this fabulous choir been all my life? I’ve heard several outstanding efforts from Robert Shaw protégé Charles Bruffy with his Kansas City Chorale, but I’ve never heard him at the helm of this brilliant Arizona group before. No choral strength you can name eludes them. They easily surpass the last Shakespeare collection I reviewed (many of the same pieces). Chandos’ usual lucid and unaffected notes, full texts and resplendent SACD-hybrid sound conspire with irresistible choral wizardry to make this an absolute must.
