Highly recommended, especially for lovers of choral music
“The performances are outstanding. Michael Tilson Thomas leads the San

Noteworthy is Getty’s arrangement of Welsh songs; the popular All Through The Night is given a particularly moving performance.
Sound quality, as usual from Pentatone, is superb. Highly recommended, especially for lovers of choral music, or anyone that yearns for a bygone age.”
