Reviews


It's a joy to hear this expert performance of Frank Martin’s Mass for Double ChoirBut the best reason to own this disc is for Seattle Pro Musica director Karen P. Thomas’ Lux Lucis, a set of three motets for women’s voices that draws on texts by Hildegard von Bingen.”
David Vernier, Classics Today, 2006

The crème de la crème of the Pacific Northwest. Most impressive…are the shimmering effects created by the Pro Musica women in conductor Karen Thomas’s own Lux Lucis, a set of three gorgeous motets…An impressive release.”
Greenfield, American Record Guide, May/June 2006

A superb performance…Truly an extraordinary choir, affiliated with the Catholic cathedral of Seattle, where the recording was made. Music of the spirit it certainly is, and the theme confers a unity on the diverse selections. Well worth hearing.”
J.F. Weber, Fanfare, September/October 2006
