Eclectric

This sparkling studio recording features an exciting collection of beloved music from the ensemble’s first decade, including brilliant new choral works, familiar favorites, and vocal jazz.

"It’s an overflowing cornucopia of choral delights… A lot of what Chicago a cappella sings, and how they sing it, reminds you of the male vocal ensemble Chanticleer. Pretty good company to be in, I would say."
—Chicago Tribune
