Cappella Romana – Angelic Light

I put my advanced copy of the new CD from Cappella Romana, Angelic Light – Music From Eastern Cathedrals, in the home stereo, unannounced, and let it play while the Mrs was cooking dinner. I’ve done such a thing before, often going unnoticed.

Not this time.

After a while, the wife said: “This is nice … who is it?”

Later, the high school senior (a vocal student at a Performing Arts school) came out of her room

Let me repeat: came out of her room

… and into the kitchen saying, “Dad? Who is this?”

So, ladies and gentlemen, there you have it; other than my playing it over and over in my car, that is my review.

Come up with your own!
