How does it compare to the artist's other releases

"Adiemus Songs of Sanctuary"

The first in the Adiemus series, Songs of Sanctuary is deep and moving. Its pulsing rhythms and stunning melodies begin from the very first few bars in the title track. The solists are exceptional in this particular recording but the really great moments are when the full choir are singing.
One of the best tracks, in my opinion, is 'In Caelum Fero' where the driving beats give a fantastic base line to the rising melody from the Soprano and Alto singers, a definite must for listening to when you're on the train, it expolits every second of its 7. 46 minutes of playing time.
This album gives a wonderful introduction to the whole Adiemus project and will give endless hours of pleasure to its listeners.
It was released in 1995 but is destined to become timeless.
