“25 x 25 is a dazzling little jewel-box of choral writing that demonstrates the ensemble’s willingness to live up to their name. These composers have come up with 25 different approaches towards the process of writing for the human voice, and the results are 25 different examples of choral virtuosity … There’s an immense richness to the variety of compositional voices displayed here. If at all possible, listeners should savor these pieces slowly, like a box of birthday confectioneries, to preserve the distinctive pleasures of each individual morsel.”  -Q2
