Described by the New Yorker magazine as “the world’s reigning male chorus”, Chanticleer is known around the world as 'an orchestra of voices', celebrated for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature - from Renaissance to jazz and from gospel to venturesome new music.

This box set pays homage to the ensemble’s extensive recording history, traversing a vast array of music for which Chanticleer has garnered much acclaim (and three Grammy Awards) over the years.
