CHRISTMAS WITH THE QUIRE OF VOYCES
This carefully selected set of 16 beautiful a cappella songs received rave reviews on its release in November 2013. It evokes the mystery of Christmas in both new and ancient light. Among the selections are Michael Eglin’s award-winning setting of Sara Teasdale’s “Barter” and a “gorgeous original contribution” by local composer Michael Bland. “What you will hear is beautiful singing of new, rare, and insightful approaches to Christendom’s most beloved holiday.” ~ Joseph Miller, Santa Barbara Independent
An eclectic compilation of Christmas gems from England, Lithuania, Spain, and North America, with Sargent’s ethereal arrangement of “Silent Night.”
ENGLISH CATHEDRAL MUSIC
A beautiful compendium of English choral music from the Renaissance and the 20th century. “Refined and beautiful.”
THE LATIN MASS
The three 16th-century Renaissance masses in this disc illustrate the nearly infinite musical responses evoked by age-old text from the Catholic Mass. The critics agree. “Thoughtfully conceived…a freshness rarely captured even by the ‘major’ recording studios and choirs. A ‘can’t-miss’ label should be on the cover for those already enamored of this repertoire—and another that reads ‘you’ve got to hear this’ should be next to it, for those who have yet to really give this kind of music a chance. …[S]omething divine has occurred in this creative process—and not just from the composers who first conceived the music.” -Greg Hettmansburger, Santa Barbara Independent
THE LATIN MASS II
This recording includes two stunning settings of the mass by acclaimed English composer Herbert Howells and the Missa Maria by Michael Eglin.
This album contains brilliant compositions by living American composers featured in Quire of Voyces concerts.
