"Reference Recordings has a way of accurately capturing the gorgeous tone of this chorale, allowing the listener to hear the nuance of individual voices, a seemingly impossible task with such a large chorale. The soundstage will run down your walls." – Bill Brooks, Soundstage

Includes selections by some of today's most popular living composers, such as Morten Lauridsen, John Ritter, Eric Whitacre and Stephen Paulus; and beloved classics by Schubert, Brahms and Caccini. A particular highlight is "Nella Fantasia" by Ennio Morricone, adapted from his film score The Mission. All are delivered with "loving kindness," passion and precision, many accompanied by an ensemble of strings and oboe.

The HDCD recording was made by "Prof." Keith Johnson in the superb, spacious acoustics of the Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas, venue of all the critically acclaimed Chorale recordings on RR and many by the Dallas Wind Symphony. Musically and sonically, Serenade is destined to become one of RR's most admired productions.
