If You Can Only Have One Christmas Recording…

Read "If You Can Only Have One Christmas Recording…" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

This Holiday article is early and necessary. I am writing this rare stand-alone review of a Seasonal offering because I have a couple of bah-humbug friends who disrespect Christmas Music. I am giving them, and all other such music Philistines, their warranted comeuppance by introducing the only proof I have ever found for the existence of ...

Notable & Nearly Missed in 2013

Read "Notable & Nearly Missed in 2013" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

More music is released each year than can be realistically followed by a given writer. I typically listen to much more music than I write about, not because this music is not worthy somehow but there is so little time. So, this year, I am going to write a “Notable & Nearly Missed" column to catch ...

Read "Chorus Corner: Chanticleer,  Cantus and Seraphic Fire" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Singers singing songs. Times are good for choral music when stalwart Chanticleer and relative newcomers Cantus and Seraphic Fire produce new music in such close proximity. Chanticleer releases a collection of concert highlights while Cantus expands the choral acreage on all four sides and Seraphic Fire looks backward with an instrumentally strip-down of an old favorite. ...

cunctae res difficiles non potest eas homo explicare sermone non saturatur oculus visu nec auris impletur auditu quid est quod fuit ipsum quod futurum est quid est quod factum est ipsum quod fiendum est nihil sub sole novum nec valet quisquam dicere ecce hoc recens est iam enim praecessit in saeculis quae fuerunt ante nos.

Chanticleer with Bishop Yvette Flunder: How Sweet the Sound

Read "How Sweet the Sound" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

After establishing itself as the premiere a cappella vocal ensemble in the United States with specialization in early music, international folk music, the Great American Songbook, holiday music, and spirituals and traditional gospel music, Chanticleer returns to old ground. It is to this latter genre that Joseph Jennings and Chanticleer return with How Sweet The Sound--Spirituals ...

Chanticleer and the Handel & Haydn Society of Boston: John Tavener-Lamentations and Praises

Read "John Tavener-Lamentations and Praises" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

I suspect that this review is untimely with respect to the fact that John Tavener’s Lamentations and Praises, as performed by the all-Male Chorus Chanticleer with orchestral support by the Handel and Haydn Society, won two Grammy® Awards on February 23, 2003. The two awards captured were for the Classical Best Small Ensemble Performance and the ...

Our American Journey is an intersection of multiple musical directions that the all-male choral group Chanticleer has been exploring for the past 20 years. Thematically, Our American Journey is a pan-continuation of several previous releases. The disc can be conveniently divided up according to the groups past and ...
