Since its founding in 1985, the Amabile Youth Singers of London, Canada has developed the musical talents of hundreds of young singers. This auditioned ensemble features 65 young women ages 12 to 21. No strangers to competitions, founding directors John Barron and Brenda Zadorsky have led them to wins in 11 national and 4 international competitions. "Garden" is a lightly-accompanied, varied collection of 20 songs-some favorites are E. Elgar's "The Snow," J. Brahms' "Lullaby," Handel's "No, divoi non vo fidarmi," D. Gawthrop's "Mary Speaks," E. Daley's lovely "Each Child," R. Thompson's "Choose Something Like a Star," A. Bevan's "Ave Maria," C. Ives' "Serenity," R. Thompson's "A Girl's Garden," J. Mantyjarvi's surprising, eclectic "Pseudo-Yoik Lite" the joyous, soaring "Paruparong Bukid" and Harold Arlen's "Over the Rainbow." Some of these pieces are dissonant and difficult to perform, but these young women make it sound easy. If you'd like a tasty feast of tunes by one of the best young women's ensembles on the planet, the aptly-named "Garden of Delights" is for you!
