A most sensitive and attractive recording. The American Repertory Singers achieve choral artistry with consistently lovely tonal quality and astounding rhythmic control and flexibility. Sara Stern and Dotian Levalier participate with highly pleasing effect and artistry. The first track of the CD is a setting of the Welsh tune 'Ar hyd y nos'. The combining of the two instrumentalists with the choir provided a captivating and alluring textual attractiveness. The Seven Words of Christ from the Cross makes most effective use of dissonance. Schuneman's reading is wondrously apt and his selection of the soloist (David F. Eberhardt) to sing the part of the Evangelist is very admirable.
