"Harvest Home" is a gem
The first thing one notices is the sonority of this ensemble. Listening to this, you are enveloped in a warmth that is perfect for autumn and Thanksgiving. I have performed some of these great arrangements; the Dale Warland Singers make me quite jealous but I am glad that they are sharing their artistry.
Unique, Original, & Rich
Never knew "Shall We Gather at the River" could sound so rich and melodious. It is one of the best songs from this album. My favorite however is "We Shall Walk Through The Valley in Peace". The mixture of rich harmonies and voices sound like I would imagine to be the closest to an angelic choir. Next songs I purchased were "Deep River" (decent), and "We Gather Together" (better than "Deep River" with more rich harmonies and that angelic sound). I wish the entire album was devoted to hymns, otherwise I would of bought the whole thing ages ago.
In a nutshell, this choir is unbelievably professional and pleasing to the ear.
