Review quote

Three of these 16 pieces are by American composers, the remainder arrangements and even when of well-known European repertoire . . . there is a pronounced American flavour in the harmonies: jazz, gospel and Broadway are not far away. Obviously appropriate when applied to North American folk carols and spirituals, the arrangements are skilfully enough done to feel right when applied to the whole repertoire . . . Canadian readers will be pleased by Sarah Quartel's atmospheric setting of the Huron Carol. Of the new pieces, Libby Larsen's A simple Gloria is most striking quiet and serene, as appropriate for the Christmas message of the angels: peace on earth. * Stephen Patterson, Church Music Quarterly Sept 13 *show more
