 Earthbound Holy of Holies, the best singers in th October 2, 2013 By Diana .B. Porter (Dallas, TX) See All My Reviews "Even without yet hearing this work,I can praise the assemblage of musicians or every rank appearing on this offering. Composers, singers, conductors, and more have already earned their stripes, and now in a new collaboration, they join their mighty forces to create music of the highest order in the classical sphere. For the producer, collecting such a group requires depth of knowledge and reputation. The audience for Classical music knows what it wants to hear. It is a blended sound so powerful, yet gentile as to allow individuals to color their work with truthful emotions weaving them in with that of their hand-picked mates at the hands of the director who magically produces an emulsion called music. I bow first with deepest respect, to the composer in whose brain those notes and sounds were born. The performers and instrumentalists must all be able to read and accurately respond to his very slightest instruction, this coming after long periods of quiet, private study so as to get the music into their blood."
