 Beautiful Voices, Beautiful Music - but September 10, 2013 By Thomas M. (Bogota, NJ) See All My Reviews "The Dominican Sisters Choir is composed of women with beautiful voices, and the music they perform (both traditional and modern) is lovely. There are only two caveats. First, the sound recording makes the Sisters sound as if they are about 2 miles away. Unless their chapel is the size of the Grand Canyon, the engineers are at fault. Second, the Sister who sings the highest soprano parts tends to go sharp on the very highest notes. This is occasionally uncomfortable for listeners with perfect pitch. All things considered, however, I recommend this CD highly." Report Abuse
