Overview

Not to be confused with the 2004 album of the same title, Chanticleer: How Sweet the Sound is a 14-CD box set, released in 2014 to celebrate the all-male vocal ensemble's impressive discography. Originally released between 1993 and 2006, these recordings represent the range of Chanticleer's extensive repertoire, from the Renaissance and Baroque music that inspired the formation of the group in 1978, to the jazz standards and contemporary arrangements of popular favorites the ensemble has added to spice up its albums and concert programs. Some of Chanticleer's best-known albums are included, such as Palestrina: Missa pro defunctis, Motets; Mexican Baroque: Music from the New Spain; Mysteria: Gregorian Chants; Out of This World: From Thomas Tallis to Bill Evans; Lost in the Stars; Wondrous Love, and eight other CDs from the group's most productive decades. This sturdy Teldec box set houses the discs in cardboard sleeves, and includes a booklet with track listings and a biography.
