...radiant and full sound...the group, at all times, projected complete interpretive assurance and a palpable sense of dedication to this music...
Great singing...interesting, challenging programs, excellent scholarly notes.
Melodies rang clear. Full awareness of harmonies, one by one, and the chorus’s unyielding focus constantly caused this listener to admire such extraordinary accomplishment...I was happy to discover this committed ensemble.
... the chorus filled the small church with rich, vital sound...Mr. Barrett also evidently has a knack for programming.
Beautiful singing...well prepared...wonderful program!
The composers you have selected are fantastic. Thank you for bringing this music out for live performance! It makes me so happy that I moved to the Boston area.
I'm just so impressed with what you all accomplish as a group, both in volume and in quality. Thank you for sharing your gifts and hard work!
This is an enchanting experience -- I am instantly calmed when you sing. I look forward to attending more!
Lovely concert! I appreciate what I learn from the program notes and from the interesting arrangement of the program.
Really fine music, not often heard. A real treat!
