Popular classics with a modern twist
Good versions of some well-known classics with a modern twist. I was a bit disappointed that some of the great harmonies you can hear on the recording are not shown. Still a good buy though if you are happy with a simpler version, or want to use as a basis for your own interpretation.

Superb Musical Enjoyment
I first heard this marvelous group on a public television broadcast, and was immediately enthralled by the tonal beauty of the performance. As I enjoy a variety of music from jazz to classical, I bought the Amici Forever CD and was so impressed that I played it for friends and relatives alike, most of whom soon purchased their own album after hearing mine. One minor downside is in attempting to understand the lyrics with the strong orchestral background. However, the album's booklet did help. That caveat aside, this is an exquisite musical experience not to be missed by anyone who enjoys sitting back, closing their eyes and being mesmerized by the beauty of the performance. Each of these young performers get five stars! Please record more.
