harmo US I muQ9l . "sheer radiance" 'The quartet offers up a stunning disc of old-time Americana: 18th-century psalm settings, 19th-century shape-note songs, camp revival hymns and famous gospel tunes. As ever, the group's purity, sweetness and joy are transfixing, whether in the haunting folk hymn 'Wayfaring Stranger' or in two unusual settings of 'Amazing Grace.' For sheer radiance ... no one else comes close to these angels." - Anastasia Tsioulcas, Biiiboard, February 7, 2004 Exclusive Canadian distribution by: S.!/t 1. www.sricanada.com
