One of my very favorites...

"I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of choral music, espcially not a capella music. I much prefer to listen to orchestras. These guys have gone a long way towards changing my mind. The fact that there are 12 men alive that can sing like this restores my faith in humanity.I heard "Loch Lomond" on the local Public Radio station as I was eating lunch in my lab one day, and I just sat there and listened with tears streaming down my face. I've never heard it sung with such feeling and such exquisite harmony. I went out and purchased the CD on the strength of this track, alone. The rest of the album did not disappoint. "Dulaman" is a terrific piece all around. I *love* the mouth percussion in "El Manisero" and "Diu Diu Deng" - very well done. Other particular favories include "L'Amour de Moy" and "Or'cha Bamidbar" for their beautiful harmonies. There really isn't a bummer in the bunch. The members of Chanticleer sing well together - their voices blend very well, and all the tracks on this album showcase their talents marvelously.This album will surely be a welcome addition to any CD collection. I recommend it highly and unreservedly."
Percy Grainger would be proud!

"Folk songs come and folk songs go, but this collection is here to stay! Vocally challenging, internationally appealing, and clearly recorded, Chanticleer brings folk music to the forefront with this release. Dulaman, an Irish folk song opens the disc with a great flourish. So much so, that I listened to that track at least 10 times before moving on. Every track on this CD is a winner. I especially appreciate the liner notes for the background information that they include. As a music teacher, this collection is a staple of my library that I will draw upon for many years to come!"

"I heard this group live and the first song they did was Dulaman.This was the most intense song I ever heard sung! If you are new to Chanticleer this is where to start. All of their songs were thuroughly researched, and somtimes taken from locals from tours to those countries. Buy it and experience their wonder."
