AllMusic Review by

This 34-voice group was featured in that great marketing coup, the Mysterious Voices album (and on the old Nonesuch Music of Bulgaria). It's a highly structured group and at times its arrangements are to Bulgarian village music as Vaughan Williams is to English. But this is a stunning vocal tradition. It is a good recording, with notes (except for titles) in Japanese only.
