From the heart of Czechoslovakia comes the most haunting and inspiring set of vocal sounds ever captured by a sampler. Wait till you hear the awesome vocal power, the range of rich timbres, and the sheer human emotion of this beautifully sampled 70-strong ensemble – working with a library like this is a moving experience. Peter Siedlaczek?s Classical Choir is an absolute masterpiece which crosses all musical dimensions. Featuring a philharmonic choir with worldwide credits. Up to 70 singers. Brilliantly recorded samples in an outstanding concert hall. Male, female and mixed choirs, in third steps. Bass, tenor, alto and soprano voices. Nothing has been left out: ensembles, clusters, sustained notes, syllables, words, glissandi, smooth, percussive or pianissimo – the variety is enormous. Not only important vowels, but even consonant like “ZZZ”, “RRR”, “SSS” (the ones which it is possible to sing!). At last, a true sampled choir – and you don?t have to pay a top orchestra session fees to get it. 5 stars out of 5 (Sound on Sound, UK).
