About this Recording


Covering a vast array of repertoire, this essential collection presents the greatest choral masterpieces in critically acclaimed performances. From the sacred music of the Medieval era, to the refinement of the Renaissance and the Baroque; from Mozart’s Classical perfection, to the Romantic worlds of Schumann, Brahms and Dvořák; and to the exciting new sounds of Penderecki and the inspired beauty of works by Eric Whitacre and Arvo Pärt, and much more besides—The Choral Collection is a fantastic celebration of the art of choral singing.
