CD Reviews

A superb choral addition to any music library

"The celebrated Robert Shaw Chorale was justly famed for their perfect balance and diction, combined with the lush orchestrations arranged by Robert Russell Bennett and conducted by the late Robert Shaw. For anyone who loves the traditional hymns and sacred pieces, this is a must-have album. Still in print after more than 45 years, the digital remastering is excellent. Included with the CD is an illustrated booklet describing each piece and, for audiophiles, an interesting account of RCA's early stereo recording techniques of the 1950s. Highly recommended."
Never outdated!

"Chorale singing is just not around much anymore. Thank God for the technology that has kept this beautiful music alive for our enjoyment. Robert Shaw Chorale was the best. Also, some of the sacred songs are getting harder and harder to find, and here they are on this one CD.
Shaw in his prime!!

"I'm surprised to not see a review for this! Even though this is not an album of 'serious' choral works, it still is well executed, and well sung! Many fans of Shaw's work would like to see a lot more of the RCA era albums reissued, namely the Stravinsky/Poulenc album, and his "On Tour" album. I feel that this CD measures up quite well to some of his later recordings on Telarc. Obviously, it does not meaure up in sound quality, but the renditions and choral mastery are near perfect. Tracks such as Schubert's "Ave Maria", "Panis Angelicus", and "Nearer My God to Thee" are sublime. Recommended!!"
