Toronto classical music critic John Terauds calls Sounzscapes: From Our Lands “a charming new album” in his review:
[Eleanor Daley’s Child with the Starry Crayon] is but one of 15 treats that reflect the Toronto Children’s Chorus’s last five years under artistic director Elise Bradley…. Children’s choral music is not only alive and well but growing and thriving in Toronto, and this album is the latest bit of proof.
With recordings spanning the last five years, Sounzscapes includes performances from:
> Main Choir 2008-2009
> Chamber Choir 2009-2010
> Chamber & Tour Choir 2010-2011
> Chorale 2011-2012
Listen to a sample track from Sounzscapes, “Cantate Domino”, by Canadian composer Rupert Lang.
