For over 500 years, the Vienna Boys' Choir has been synonymous with choral music. In a city that has been home to many of the greatest names in music history, it continues to be one of the most recognized names and sounds in the world.
A compilation of "greatest hits," ANGELIC VOICES features most of the expected classics, including Georg Frideric Handel's "Hallelujah" and Franz Gruber's "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht." However, there are several surprises in store for listeners, including an amusing arrangement of Carlos Jobim's 'The Girl from Ipanema.'
Those looking for a retrospective of the Vienna Boys Choir will not be disappointed by ANGELIC VOICES. Likewise, those looking for an introduction to the world of choral music would be wise to choose this as a prime example.
