Kanta Cantemus Korua : Javier Busto: Musika

Review: Founded in Gipuzkoa, Spain by famed Spanish composer/conductor Javier Busto, KCK is comprised of 18 female voices, in their middle to late teens. The internationally-known Busto's choirs have won first place awards in France, Italy, Austria and Germany. "Javier Busto: Musika" is mostly Christian sacred music, and was recorded in Spain in 1995. The group's bright, clear sound is the perfect complement for these 24 lovely compositions. Some favorites are "Kanta Cantemus," the 3-part "Hiru Eguberri Kanta," "Ave Maria," "Magnificat," the beautiful 2-part "Muxika," "Laudate Dominum," "The Lord is My Shepherd," "Alleluia," the 5-part "Gauaren Zergatiaren Bila," "Amodica" and "For Us." "Musika" is a treat, an opportunity to hear the work of a master Spanish composer performed by his hand-picked choir.

Kanta Cantemus Korua : Kanta Cantemus Korua: En Directo- Live

Review: Internationally acclaimed conductor, founder and composer Javier Busto directs his 18-strong women's choir in their 2nd excellent CD, "Live." Created in 1995 with the goal of enjoying the music written for female choirs, which has been achieved to their complete satisfaction, Kanta now has among their repertoire a number of beautiful pieces created for them. These include Christian sacred music by Busto, including the 4 movements of the "Missa Augusta," and his "Alma Redemptoris Mater," "Responsorio de Navidad," and "Agur Maria." Eva Ugalde's "Tximeletak," "Uraren Besotik" and "Annbel Lee," some with piano accompaniment, are also lovely, as is Junkal Guerrero's "Ave Maria." These 20 lovely, soaring, mostly a cappella songs, highlighted by the bright, sweet, clear sound of KCK, are a treat to listen to. Close your eyes, settle back
