San Francisco Boys Chorus : We're On Our Way : 00  1 CD : Ian Robertson : 

San Francisco Boys Chorus : We're On Our Way

Review: The SF Boys Chorus, founded as a resource for the San Francisco Opera in 1948, has developed into one of America's foremost musical and educational institutions for singing boys. Over the years the chorus has regularly provided boys for choruses and solos for the SF Opera, Symphony, Ballet and the Carmel Bach Festival. Officially named "SF's Singing Ambassadors to the World," the chorus has performed in Carnegie Hall and toured in Europe, Russia, Japan, Korea, Italy and Australia. "We're On Our Way" has 16 songs, particularly nice are the 6 movements of Mozart's "Missa Brevis in C, K.220," and his "Laudate Dominum," Cesar Franck's "Panis Angelicus," Henry Purcell's "Sound the Trumpet," Schubert's "Ave Maria," F. Coppola's sweet "Little Moon," and Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Pie Jesu from 'Requiem." All piano, organ or orchestrally (by the SF Boys Chorus Orchestra) accompanied. Truly lovely!

Songlist: Missa Brevis in C, K. 220, Laudate Dominum, Fanfare: Gloria in Excelsis Deo , Panis Angelicus, Sound The Trumpet , Ave maria , Psalm 23: The Lord's My Shepherd , Little Moon , May The Words , Pie Jesu from "Requiem" , Psalm, 92: Break Forth, O Israel
