Review: Artistic Director David Cherwien, conductor, organist and pianist, leads the Minneapolis, MN-based National Lutheran Choir in this live, organ and piano-accompanied collection of 13 joyous hymns. We are clearly invited to sing this triumphant music along with the Choir, as the liner notes feature the lyrics of all the songs in unusually large type; with very little about the size, history or details about the Choir or Director Cherwein. It's all about the music, about the power and faith of this great American Choir. Some favorites are "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee," "Angels We Have Heard on High," "Down in the River to Pray," "Steal Away," "Standin' in the Need of Prayer," "When Peace Like A River" and "Holy God, We Praise Your Name." A quote on the back of the liner notes says in part, "Joyful music leads us sunward. In the triumph song of life. Stars and angels sing around thee, Center of unbroken praise" "Hymns We Love to Sing, Vol. II" is by a wonderful Choir that loves to sing joyous praises to God, and they invite us to join them!
Songlist: Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee, The King Of Love My Shepherd Is, Angels We Have Heard On High, Down In The River To Pray, O Sacred Head, Now Wounded, Alleluia! Christ Is Arisen, Steal Away, O Blessed Spring, Standin' In The Need Of Prayer, You Are Holy, I Want Jesus To Walk With Me, When Peace Like A River, Holy God, We Praise Your Name
Review: Founded in 1986 by Dr. Larry L. Fleming, and now directed by Dr. David Cherwien, the Minneapolis-based, mixed-voice NLC is comprised of professional choral musicians. "I Sing" is a limited edition CD, celebrating the Choir's 2003 West Coast Tour. Included are 9 songs, the spirituals "Ain'a That Good News" and "Tell 'em I'm Gone," the title tune, M.A. Blakireff's "Send Out Thy Light," Urmas Sisask's "Oremus," "Prayer for Peace" (by director Cherwein), Barber's "Lamb of God" and Tavener's "Song for Athene." Beautiful and inspirational.

Review: Minneapolis/St. Paul-based, world-renowned NLC brings us a bright, beautifully-wrapped Christmas gift, "This Night," their 10th excellent recording in the PAC library. This lovely collection of 18 songs, some lightly accompanied, of course includes standards like "Lo, How a Rose," "Angels We Have Heard on High," "Coventry Carol" and "Jesus, Jesus Rest Your Head," but it's the lesser-known pieces that are a happy surprise. A wonderful pair by Conrad Susa, "O Bethlehem" and "On December's Frozen Ground," Mark Sedio's "Manger Carol," Johannes Eccard's "Over the Hills," David Cherwien's "Little Lamb," and Anne Kilstofte's "Children of Peace" are just a few of the songs that make "This Night" a very special recording, and a holiday favorite for years to come!
Songlist: O, Bethlehem , On December's Frozen Ground, Ave Maria, What Child , Jesus, Jesus Rest Your Head, Twelfth Night, Manger Carol , T'was in the Moon of Wintertime, Over the Hills , Coventry Carol, Lux Aurumque, Lo, How a Rose , Little Lamb , A Savior from on High , Angeles We Have Heard on High, Quempas Carol, Children of Peace, Thou Wilt Keep Him Perfect Peace
