Just a Bit of Straight-Tone Women's Singing from the Santa Fe Desert Chorale

I've been a fan of this style of singing since hearing "Les Voix Mysteres" back in the 1970s. Here's a link to a rehearsal video from the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, a professional ensemble, preparing for appearances at the ACDA in Salt Lake City earlier this year.  This full-throated style is probably what most vocal music sounded like for centuries.

The world of choral music is so vast. When I explore it, sometimes I feel like St. Brendan paddling across the sea in his coracle and making remarkable discoveries.

(Apologies for not being able to connect to this more elegantly, but sometimes Blogger just confuses me.)
