This new CD by the Victoria Scholars Men’s Choral Ensemble has a deep and rich sound that I can’t resist!

Four stars out of four
– John Terauds

This Toronto all-male choir has produced a fabulous all-Canadian disc under music director Jerzy Cichocki. It’s a generous 69 minutes tilted in favour of accessible sacred settings by composers such as Denis Bédard, Peter Togni, Imant Raminsh and Srul Irving Glick. The vocal balance is superb and the music beautifully shaped. The booklet includes plenty of background information and all the texts.

— John Terauds, Reviewer for The Toronto Star

 

Distant Voices finds its sweetness in Srul Irving Glick’s settings of The Song of Songs, gorgeously enhanced by David Hetherington’s cello. The choir shines in introducing its dark and mystical element with the dramatic title piece by Tomas Dusatko, a 14-minute journey from chaos to reverence. Commissioned by the choir, the skillful execution of this piece is no mean feat.
