Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Robert Shafer conducts his chorus and the Washington Orchestra in a fresh, well-disciplined reading. The chorus is rather backwardly placed, but Shafer’s clean-cut directness helps to avoid any feeling of sentimentality. Outstanding among the soloists is Christine Brewer, and John Aler, though not as sweet-tone as usual, sings very sensitively too. The mezzo, Marietta Simpson, is tremulous as recorded, as Ding Gao is clear and reliable in the bass solos.
