New York Polyphony is emerging as one of the finest classical vocal ensembles of a new generation.  From the simplicity of plainchant to the dense chromaticism of contemporary works, the four men deliver dynamic, historically informed performances in a range of styles.  About the quartet, the Denver Post writes "Not only is each singer skilled in the breadth and subtleties of his particular range, but their voices blend into a well-balanced whole."

For their second release, the all-male foursome delivers their signature fusion of historically informed performances in a range of styles. Interspersed between sacred masterpieces of Tudor England are four new works by British-Norwegian composer Andrew Smith, adding a modern harmonic richness and complexity to the album. The result is a compelling synthesis of ancient and contemporary vocal music.
