I Heard the Owl Call My Name / Nunn, Bach, Poulenc, Josquin
Another recording of this world-class choir - and the critics agree:
"Alle Achtung! ... 24 young Australians sang the most difficult German music in the most excellent manner possible ... the dynamic contrasts and vitality went alongside the best articulated German."
"The performance" of Philip Nunn's fascinating sound picture, the wordless 'I Heard the Owl Call my Name' "was a completely winning one".
"The choir immediately displayed an understanding for knife-sharp intonation, and - not least - excellent diction ... The mass afforded ... an opportunity to show the quality of solo-singing."
"Entries and exits" in Josquin des Près' 'Missa Pange Lingua ' "were woven into the tapestry of sound with barely a falter ... Blend and intonation were faultless".
These are critics' comments received during the choir's European tour, when this CD was recorded.
Jesu meine Freude, BWV 227 (Bach)
