I had to stop working when an astounding performance of Purcell's "Hear My Prayer, O Lord" came through my headphones. Don't be put off by the unfortunately tacky title of this album--this is a top-notch choir.more....
The rather sensual title seems inappropriate for this sacred music album. But the music is an ecstasy of joy. The first two songs are simply heavenly - sung with such beauty and grace that one can believe it was being sung by angels themselves. It took my breath away when I heard it so much so that I had to stop everything that I was doing and listen in awe.more....
