Legends from Ancient Bohemia and Poland

Demonstrating the ensemble’s ability to sing as individual soloists as well as a splendidly blended choir, this disc features beautiful spiritual songs of Hildegard von Bingen, motets from Renaissance Spain by Francisco Guerrero, and various Gregorian chants for the feast of the Assumption and the Holy Mass of the Angels.

“The timbre of the Rose Ensemble is really lovely.  Their singing is clear and forthright, quite reminiscent of Sequentia.  One can hear it in the exuberant way they attack and drive through phrases.  It really contributes to the rhetoric of the lyrics.”

— Loewen, American Record Guide, September/October 2009
