Notes and Editorial Reviews

The past two decades have marshaled an advent of numerous new professional choral ensembles in the United States, enriching the artistic environment for choral music lovers and professional singers alike. A product of that new landscape, Kinnara Ensemble has forged a bold path in the busy musical marketplace in New Jersey and the surrounding areas. The ensemble was founded in the fall of 2008 by a handful of Westminster Choir College alumni who sought to continue the musical fulfillment they enjoyed as students. Ten years later, Kinnara Ensemble, now comprising singers from throughout the nation, releases this album commemorating our provenance and shared path of musical and human exploration. Kinnara Ensemble strives to honor the capacious Read more choral tradition – that rich inheritance – with exemplary choral experiences that speak to the modern soul. Kinnara Ensemble's first album, Provenance, is a bold step out for this recent arrival on the choral scene. The ensemble tackles a wide array of choral repertoire: di Lasso, Brahms, Poulenc, Paulus... and the austere, stunning, and rarely recorded Lamentations of Jeremiah by Alberto Ginastera. Read less
