“…elevated all things beautiufl…jaw dropping…absolutely riveting.”
— Lee Hartman, KCMetropolis
…the performance was electric, exciting, and welcome respite from the usual fare …offering a new vision for holiday choral concerts. I will not miss another Kantorei concert.
–Michael Austin, KCMetropolis
Kantorei is one of the most focused groups in town with clear direction, clear programming, and pristine singing. Kantorei should be on your must-hear list!
–Lee Hartman, KCMetropolis
Kantorei blended exquisitely and saturated the space with a warm, rich sound.
–Kristin Shafel, KCMetropolis
Simply divine. –Kristin Shafel, KCMetropolis
The groundswell of pure music from these beautiful voices is a rare treat.

“Another thing to say early on is that I know singers and listeners in the UK who have a slight aversion to American choirs. Some consider them maybe a little unsubtle or even, dare I say, unsophisticated both in tone quality, diction and in choice of repertoire. Well again, so far as this disc is concerned, you may have no fear on that account. There is strength to be heard here but also a ravishing purity at times from the Kansas (City) Kantorei performances. This may possibly remind you of an Oxbridge choir.”
