" . . . more fun than human beings should be allowed, the most addictive CD to come my way in a long time is Shall I Compare Thee? Choral Songs on Shakespeare on the Cedille label. Some of the pieces are familiar from previous Shakespeare compilations--Jaako Mantyjarvi’s Four Shakespeare Songs, with its magnificent "Come away, come away, death;" a selection of Matthew Harris’s Shakespeare’s Songs from which you would never in a million years guess that he was a student of Carter and Babbitt; Nils Lindberg’s Shall I Compare Thee? But, most of the material is new--to me, at least--and none of it has ever been sung this well on CD. The Chicago a capella is some kind of magic blend of the great old jazz group, the Hi-Los, with a little Double Six of Paris and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir thrown in. I challenge anyone who listens to the first cut--Summer Sonnet by Kevin Olson, a composer and pianist at Elmhurst College near Chicago--to stop humming it for a week."
