"Christopher Lowrey has put together something extraordinary...the journey through the life of Christ told in six centuries of music, so many surprising juxtapositions...and it just makes perfect sense. The performances are superb...a beautiful recording and joy to listen to, the sound lovely, warm, and resonant."

A chamber choir of "seamless ensemble perfection" (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), ENSEMBLE ALTERA was founded to be the beating heart of professional choral music in the United States. Led by internationally celebrated countertenor Christopher Lowrey, the group has quickly become known for thoughtful programming, passionate performances, and tireless advocacy for the importance of ensemble singing in the broader music culture.

"Rather than watching an individual leading a group of singers, I had more an experience of conductor and ensemble moving together, pulsing as one."
