Food for the Soul
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've had to order a 2nd copy of this CD because I've listened to my 1st one so often, it's worn out. It is wonderful! This music always puts me in a happy mood. It is truly 'food for the soul'."
Outstanding - gives you goose bumps

"I love rousing choral music and this really filled the bill. Listening to the likes of Carmina Burana totally sweeps you you goose bumps....I HIGHLY recommend this CD. Great for people who are not very knowledgeable, because it has the BEST known choruses."
Decent compilation, indifferent sonics

"Pros: This is a pretty good collection of some of the more famous choral works in the classical canon. It would make a decent introduction to classical choral works, and it's a decent value for the price.

Cons: I got this CD for two tracks recorded by Leopold Stokowski and the Norman Luboff Choir--Bach's 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring' and Wagner's 'Pilgrim's Chorus'. I have these on an LP, 'Stokowski's Greatest Hits' (RCA Red Seal VCS-7077). They're wonderful. Sadly, the analog-to-digital transfer for the CD wasn't the greatest. I cued up the tracks on the LP and started the CD track at the same time and switched back and forth, listening to the differences. The thirty-five year old LP had a much better imaged soundstage and presence.

That minor disappointment aside, the CD sounds okay. Worth the price.
