Close your eyes, open your ears, and take a deep breath of Pure Elektra. This recording brings the listener 16 tracks of outstanding music performed by this award-winning Canadian ensemble between 2010 and 2012. Released in celebration of the choir's 25th Anniversary season, this disc includes four pieces commissioned for and premiered by Elektra in concert, and of which this is the first recording available. A recording like this has two intended audiences: one of listeners who are attracted to the exhilarating and moving sounds of fine choral music, and another of choral conductors who are looking to discover new repertoire for their own ensembles. All but three of the composers and arrangers are alive and well in 2012, most of them Canadians, and their presence on this recording signifies Morna Edmundson's true respect for the beautiful work they do creating unique and engaging works for women's voices.
