Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (6/98, p.58) - Peformance: 4 (out of 5), Sound: 3 (out of 5) - "...[Ephrem Podgaits' 'Spring Mass' is] an attractively conceived work....Bortniansky's unaccompanied 19th-century Orthodox 'Liturgy', couched in seven short movements, is a polished gem. The Vesna Choir sings it with warmth, charm and gravitas, and the lucid three-part textures show off the children's voices in the best possible light."
