Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since Grammy-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus Director Ragnar Bohlin founded his own topflight chamber choir Cappella SF in 2014, a new dimension of a cappella choral excellence has graced the bay Area’s (and the nation’s) musical scene. Timeless- the ensemble’s third album for Delos- offers choral fans and history-minded classical music aficionados a rare smorgasbord of choral compositions encompassing every musical period of the past millennium. Selections range from the chant-based music of Hildegard von Bingen and Guillaume de Machaut to stunning pieces by such distinguished living composers as Arvo Part, Eric Whitacre, Frank Ticheli and Ola Gjeilo- and all points in between. Any serious music lover who wishes to trace the Read more evolution of Western choral musicfrom its ancient beginnings to contemporary times will find this stunning new album to be a truly ear-grabbing revelation. “I frankly was so captivated by the performances- above all, the beautiful sound and clear articulation of the parts- that I barely noticed the change from one composer to another…” (San Francisco Classical Voice) Read less
