Notes and Editorial Reviews

For choirs everywhere, Mike Brewer’s World Tour is like a memo: please listen, and realise what’s possible.

The director of the National Youth Choir has been inspired by his worldwide travels and here presents stirring but practical adaptations that let Western performers enjoy Zulu, Bengali or Tunisian material while resisting spurious harmonic padding.

Catch the NYCGB’s enthusiastic skills at sliding between the notes or opening throats, and ask why your local choral groups shouldn’t do the same.

-- Robert Maycock, BBC Music Magazine
