Eight members of Talented Bay Area 9-man a cappella ensemble wowed the sellout crowd recently at the Harmony Sweeps Regional at SF's Palace of Fine Arts, and their finely-crafted harmonies are well in evidence on the 21 songs of "Lyric Journey." Beginning with the R. Vaughn Williams-arranged "Bushes & Briars" and Michael McGlynn's "Dulaman," and finishing with three spirituals, the beautiful "Deep River," "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" and "Ride the Chariot," "Lyric" is a musical smorgasbord of tasty short, wonderfully-harmonic cuts. Favorites also include 3 songs sung in German, "In einem kuhlen Grunde," "Du, du liegst mi rim Herzen" and "Till Osterland;" the Swedish folk song "Aftonen," the Aaron Copland-arranged "The Little Horses," Daniel Gawthrop's "Sing Me To Heaven," Kirke Mecham's "Blow Ye the Trumpet," Manuel Sanchez Acosta's "Paraiso Sonado," and the joyous folk song "Vive L'Amour," arranged by Robert Shaw & Alice Parker. "Lyric Journey" is a treat from beginning to end, and all the words are there in the extensive, nicely-printed liner notes.
