Manitou Singers - Repertoire For Women's Voices Vol 7

"Repertoire for Women's Voices, Vol. 7" continues an impressive series from Northfield, MN's St. Olaf College's youngest vocal ensemble, formed of 100 first year women singers. Facing the daunting task of creating a world-class group from 100 new singers every year, Sigrid Johnson comes through every time, each "Repertoire" a soaring, poised, impressive winner! A few favorites from this 19 song, mostly lightly piano accompanied collection would be a pair by David P. Rossow, "Agnus Dei" and "Sanctus;" a pair of Spirituals, the Moses Hogan-arranged "Music Down In My Soul" and "Go Down Moses," arranged by Mark Hayes; 3 "Songs of Innocence" by Karl Korte; Robert Sieving's "She Sat and Sang" and many others. Beautiful, well-chosen songlist, and wonderful young, soaring voices—don't miss this one! 9804 CD 15.95
