Review By SB66640,December 2010

Chicago a cappella is fast becoming the band to look out for. Their direction in this case is impeccable. Not a sign of a vibrato anywhere. Their recording of Shakespeare songs by modern composers shows that they are not just good but versatile as well.

Little is known of Maturin Forestier but the clarity of his polyphony makes this a real and resounding pleasure to listen to. The allusion to L'homme armé suggests that the theme should be heard. Not very apparently though!

I think this is the first CD I have purchased from the Centaur label, the quality is absolutely first class.
