Quire Cleveland makes life more harmonious by providing a vital connection to distant lands and ages past, through the human voice. Breathing life into choral music which may have lain silent for centuries, Quire reveals the timelessness and universal humanity of this art. Under the artistic direction of Ross W. Duffin, Quire performs nine centuries of a cappella repertoire.

“So many scholarly publications reach library shelves only to remain there undisturbed that it is a positive joy to greet this recording of the A-R Editions 2006 volume with the same title. Few of these pieces are at all well-known and a third of them have required a degree of reconstruction but this has been convincingly done by Ross Duffin (editor of the music and conductor of the choir) and other choral directors need not be hesitant in following his performing path. In his note he concedes that the original performing forces would have been consort rather than choir and the venues domestic rather than ecclesiastical, but in their own terms these are very good performances. … This is a recording I will value, and not just because of the repertoire. The notes are excellent and there is much more information in the edition.”
