"This CD shows how far David Cherwien has taken this choir—it just keeps getting better and better.  The sound is big and warm, with clear intonation.  The choir sings with grace and finesse but can really punch when the music calls for it.  Music of Lutheran heritage is here, as one would expect, along with spirituals and new works.  "Softly and Tenderly, Jesus is Calling" will have the most jaded atheist looking for the nearest altar call.  "Water Night" by Eric Whitacre and a first recording of Ave Maria by Anna K. Jacobs (winner of the 2006 National Luther Choir Composition Contest) are noteworthy, but the entire CD is worth it.  Highly Recommended!" -Gothic Publications
