ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recording / Mixing / Mastering: Jasper LeMaster

Second Engineer: Rafael Green


SONUS is a modern a cappella choir, born from the desire to create beautiful music with excellence and passion, with an emphasis on modern and sacred music. They are dedicated to a collective leadership, founded and run by a team of four leaders, as well as the entire choir working together to create a transcendent experience, not only for the listener, but for the performer. Every member of the choir has input in the shaping of the music, creating a truly beautiful and unified sound.
Since its founding in 2014, SONUS has created a unique listening experience, as they sing in an open semi-circle with the conductor singing with them in their midst. This allows a uniquely emotional and dynamic performance, as the separation is removed between choir and conductor. Their specialization of straight-tone singing creates yet another level of musical synergy. There is no vibrato to disrupt the overtones created by pure pitches, so the full color of sound can be heard and felt, making SONUS a rich and deeply moving musical experience.
SONUS has been a guest artist at Big Ears Festival, and has performed alongside award-winning "Bang on a Can" for Julia Wolfe's Pulitzer Prize winning work, "Anthracite Fields."

Sonus Vol. 1 features modern choral music by living composers, Eric Whitacre, Paul Mealor, and the choir's own co-founder and rehearsal director, Timbre Cierpke. Also featured are traditional choral works by Sergei Rachmaninoff and Paul Manz. This song collection draws the listener through a beautiful landscape of beauty, peace, and quietude.

Press:
"SONUS/ performance style is…without vibrato, allowing the voices to merge into enveloping sound. SONUS delivers a complex density of tone.”
- I Care If You Listen
“SONUS sings beautifully, and their program is well-considered and scintillating. Our congregation enjoyed the warmth of sound and purity of execution, and the deep emotional connection of the singers to this music.”
-Kent Tritle, Music Director for St John the Divine Cathedral
“SONUS presents beautiful performances as a tightly-knit ensemble, while managing to still showcase the clear passion of every single one if its members”
-Benjamin Jones, founder of Nashville Chamber Music Series
