[ Atoll / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 11 April 2014
Atoll Records presents Voice of the Soul by 16 singers from Voices NZ Chamber Choir with musical director Karen Grylls.
Voice of the Soul is a metaphor for a journey of traditions, storytelling and passionate music of the senses. For the listener, this CD experience is rather like walking around a gallery, where the exhibits are musical rather than visual. The voices of the instruments seduce us into the world of each new piece and fill us with expectation. Powerful taonga pūoro is provided by Horomona Horo.
"An interesting choral recital with a strong New Zealand flavour. Well worth hearing for those looking for something slightly unusual." (MusicWeb May 2015)
