Malle Babbe Women's Choir: Paradise Road

In a time of war, and extraordinary group of women turned a song of hope into a symphony of triumph. From the director of "Driving Miss Daisy" come a true story of courage, triumph, friendship and strength starring Glenn Close ("Dangerous Liaisons"), Oscar winner Frances McDormand (1996 Best Actress, "Fargo") and Emmy Award winner Juliana Marguiles (TV's "ER"). This compelling drama reveals the heroic actions of a group of women help prisoner by the Japanese during World War II. These diverse women from different countries, speaking different languages, unite to form a vocal orchestra - a life affirming symphony of human voices. The voices behind the on-screen choir that appear on this remarkable album belong to the Dutch women's choir Malle Babbe, who perform the actual arrangements of the original choir's arrangements from sheet music salvaged by the women prisoners upon their liberation. Hear for yourself the inspiring music behind this story of the triumph over despair and the preservation of hope.
