The oldest boychoir in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area (founded in 1962), The Minnesota Boychoir's reputation for excellence has led to invitations local and national music conventions, touring Broadway companies, orchestras, operas and symphonies. They have toured in 10 states and on five continents. 'Impart' is a piano-accompanied collection of 16 sacred and religious songs, beginning with Jeffrey LaValley's 'Holy, Holy, Holy' and Vivaldi's 'Et Exultavit' and 'Esurientes' from 'Vivaldi for Treble Voices.' Rollo Dilworth's 'Jordan's Angels,' 'Sherri Porterfield's 'Laudate Dominum,' Antonio Lotti's short-but-lovely a cappella 'Cum Sancto Spiritu,' Gabriel Faure's 'Sanctus' and 'Cantique de Jean Racine,' Julie Knowles' 'Let the Nations Sing,' Bach's 'Der Herr Segne Euch,' Keith Hampton's 'True Light' and the title song by Stephen Paulus are some favorites, but in fact every cut is beautifully chosen and performed. A deep, confident, impressive recording by one of our favorite boychoirs.
