Amateur at best
(1 out of 5 stars)

"There is very little to like about this CD. First of all, I enjoy professional recordings; this CD had minor imperfections in the sound quality. Second, the choir was entirely forgettable. Finally, I purchased the CD for Randall Thompson's "Last words of David"... and could distinctly hear intonation problems. Not my cup of tea..."
The Horror...

"I don't guess I appreciate the amateur massed-choral milieu. I adore Welsh choral music, but I was definitely disappointed by this CD. The recordings are live concert recordings, with all the inherent problems and inconsistencies found therein. Also, the choirs presented here are definitely NOT professional level choruses. They are consistent with the tenor/bass sections of a pretty good church choir (without any ringers or paid section leaders). The limited artistic abilities of these choruses and the poor recording qualities do not do justice to the beauty of the compositions."

"I listen to a lot of music (have season tickets to both Opera and Symphony) and this is one of the best CD's I've ever bought. The voices are outstanding throughout, and the songs themselves are wonderful. While I have a bent towards the classical, this is a recording that would please anyone. (I'm buying another one for my cousin! )"
