Description: 116 choirs (five of which are in amost all of the performances) from all over Europe, the U.S. and South America and six different orchestras are involved is this massive release of live recordings of the final concerts in the "International Festival of University Choirs" in Poznan. Needless to say, there is no space for more detailed information except to note that I was unable to listen to all of this music and cannot vouch for it all being tonal but the use of Latin and Classical subject matter is a good sign! 5 CDs for the price of 4. No texts.
