The trebles-only Etherea Vocal Ensemble is perhaps the most unusual mini-choir of its kind, consisting of eight voices – belonging to seven accomplished ladies and one supremely versatile gentleman: Derek Greten-Harrison, the ensemble’s director and performing countertenor. Keyboard wizard Alan Murchie and virtuoso harpist Grace Cloutier provide sensitive and expert accompaniment.
By special arrangement with Delos and the Etherea Vocal Ensemble, ClassicsOnline is pleased to offer this new release exclusively to ClassicsOnline customers. The album becomes available to the rest of the world in January, 2013.
