The Whole Note
February 7, 2009

 These CDs are by far the two the two best Canadian Christmas choral recordings heard from this year's offerings. Vancouver's Musica Intima, a l2-voice a capella ensemble perform seasonal gems, some modern, some ancient with fresh arrangements, many by the members themselves, and selections by Willan, Howells and Britten. The purity of sound, perfect intonation and ethereal quality of the tonalities evoke an often-mystical experience throughout the album. Yet this sound is not without the warm, lush harmonies representing the heart's fires kindled by love at yuletide. Add to this a shimmering, luminous quality suggesting an angelic presence and all the elements of Christmas are perfectly awakened.

Musica Intima est l'une des chorales les plus intéressantes de l'heure. Formé de 12 choristes solistes. l'ensemble de Vancouver se produit sans chef, ce qui exige un travail méticuleux dans l 'interprétation et une communication de tous les instants. ll aime faire découvrir de belles pages de jeunes compositeurs peu connus. Britten excepté, c'est le cas ici. Un disque de Noël pas banal.
