David Castleberry
Choral Journal, August 2015

This is not a “go to” collection of Billings, Ives, Hogan, or Whitacre. Rather, it is a compilation that leads listeners far away from familiar American landscapes and into literature well outside standard concert fare. Yes, the composers here are familiar, but the selections are not what one usually associates with an American sound. © 2015 Choral Journal

Guy Engels
Pizzicato, August 2014

The SWR-Vokalensemble proves once more that it is one [of] the leading choirs in the world. In some of the most exciting vocal scores of the American 20th century, Marcus Creed’s flexible conducting is stylistically flawless. © 2014 Pizzicato

Peter Dickinson
Gramophone, August 2014

This is a fastidious selection of American music, blending the known and unknown, from an outstanding choir.

…an outstanding anthology, superbly performed… © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
