Review By Rosemary Anderson,Naxos,April 2006

It's no surprise that the Choir of St. John's, Elora, is releasing another CD. This award-winning group of 21 professional singers, directed by Noel Edison, not only sings at church services, but gives recitals here and overseas.

Hear My Prayer: Hymns and Anthems, is the title of the choir's new CD, which will be released by Naxos on Tuesday.

"I've used some of the best Anglican traditional music, and the most enriched,'' says Edison, organist and choirmaster of St. John's Anglican Church.

"I've got a top-flight Canadian soprano, Karina Gauvin, as soloist and a very fine organist, Matthew Larkin from Ottawa. The music is just wonderful.''


Review By Alan_Artner,Chicago Tribune,April 2006

After studies with Gilles Tremblay in Montreal, Gottfried Michael Koenig in Utrecht and Karlheinz Stockhausen in Cologne, the Canadian Claude Vivier went to Asia and realized, "the trip was basically a journey into my essence." The haunting, ritualistic music he developed afterward had many unusual vocal effects embedded in chantlike melodies that proceed with all instruments playing in close to the same rhythm with almost no counterpoint.
