The Yerevan Women's Choir of Armenia, a 30 member musical chamber group, has a distinctive fresh, exuberant sound and a repertoire that ranges from 5th Century Armenian sacred music to works of the Western choral tradition, to contemporary Scandinavian and Russian music.The Choir, which has performed more than 300 concerts throughout Armenia, the former Soviet republics and Western Europe, has won 8 international awards at European competitions. Their repertoire is drawn from the a cappella tradition of Armenian vocal art--folk melodies, sacred music and patriotic songs. This excellent CD features works by 10 Armenian composers/arrangers. Some of our favorites are "Kutanerg" by Komitas, "Abaran" by Robert Petrossian, "Amen Hair Surb" by Shnorhali, "Madrigal" by Gabrieli, and the dramatic "Metamorphoses" by Sidelnikov. The YWCA enriches the Armenian vocal tradition while at the same time exposing in to a wide new audience.
