Six Pitches - One Voic e!December 21, 2017By Patrick F. (Oak Park, IL)See All My Reviews"Ensemble singing with (VERY) few peers. Listen to their unison singing, dead-on pitch, the unanimity of vowels sounds, the group dynamics contrasted with an emphasis on one or two voices, the long lines, their ability to handle rubato, etc., etc. And you can't fully appreciate how really tight they are unless you see and hear them live and in person and experience how they pull it off so apparently effortlessly and with such panache (as they did on this disc). Lovers of a cappella singing should grab this disc."Report Abuse
