Quite honestly, what do you associate with the world of male choruses? Exactly. It is time that you reassessed your prejudices! The Camerata Musica Limburg male chorus consists of singers who, once upon a time, all sang in Limburg’s cathedral boys choir. This tradition can be felt at every turn: Jan Schumacher expertly guides the ensemble through the repertoire on this new Genuin CD, the men singing with flawless intonation and a superbly focused choral sound. No wish is left unsatisfied—a more comprehensive, more perfectly rendered program of Romantic repertoire for male chorus is hardly possible, from perennial favorites (Silcher, Schubert) to attractive literature not often performed (Vaughan-Williams, Alfvén). With sterling solo performances by Christoph Prégardien, Alison Browner and Andreas Weller, words scarcely suffice in praising this achievement. The choice of a Caspar David Friedrich motif for the CD cover is fitting—for this disc sounds heavenly!

"A men’s choir with a wonderfully noble sound presents itself here. The three beautifully lyrical choral movements of the Englishman Ralph Vaughan Williams succeed here with velvety soft timbres." (Neue Chorzeit 3/2009)
