AllMusic Review by

The Bulgarian State Radio & Television Vocal Choir, 24 voices strong, takes traditional harvest songs, odes, and laments and wraps them in modern arrangements that preserve and polish the age-old qualities of this exotic and compelling music. Their beautiful and dissonant harmonies float and shift in waves of piercingly clear sound, often built on complex meters and off-center, chant-like rhythms. A strong Asian flavor is heard, full of emotional intensity, ranging from full choral treatments to solos, trios, and quartets.
