A Cappella IIThe Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys
Gerre Hancock, conductor
Judith Hancock, organist
David Vernier of ClassicsToday.com writes: "Although I didn't have the pleasure of hearing A Cappella I, I know this excellent choir first-hand, hearing it live at its home-base, New York's Saint Thomas Church, and reviewing several of its previous CD releases... The point is, this new disc, featuring a variety of sacred works by 20th-century composers and arrangers, fully measures up to this revered choir's reputation for first-rate singing and for being what can only be described as America's finest English cathedral choir. Everything from the bright, prominent treble tone to the enunciation and inflection--even the choir's vestments--comes from the long-established Anglican tradition, and under the careful tutelage of director Gerre Hancock these choristers have nothing to apologize for, either in technique or in musicianly command of the repertoire."
