Singer Pur have a reputation for programming and for effective educational work. This, to quote its subtitle, is ‘spiritually-inclined vocal music from the cultures of the world’, which gives a poorish, if accurate, sense of the range of material presented here. There is work by Palestrina and Bach, but also Mohammed Fairouz and Sandeep Bhagwati, plus the Xhosa traditional Ndikhokhele Bawo, which is a brave choice for a German-speaking ensemble. The balance of voices, with tenors fulfilling alto duties, is well-nigh perfect and a close-sounding recording gives the music real intimacy and presence.
