    A Complete Delight!

    I found this collection to be, by turns, stirring, touching, soulful, and toe-tapping. While I was previously unfamiliar with this genre of music, I soon found myself humming along and going back to play over again my favorites. The Counterpoint singers are wonderful, and the musicians providing background equally talented. A real treat!

    Wonderfully singable music!

    I've enjoyed Counterpoint in concert. Their enthusiastic rendition of traditional Eastern European music is heart-warming. I admire Robert De Cormier's youthful enthusiasm in seeking out new areas of musical interest to explore and introduce to us all. I am delighted to have this CD in my collection, to give it to delighted friends and family ... and to encourage others to buy it!

    This CD is a must-have!

    I don’t speak Yiddish. I am not a child – or relative – of Holocaust survivors. But this CD resonates for me in a unique way. I keep it in my car CD player and play it over and over. The evocative cumulative effect of the quality of Counterpoint’s voices, the arrangements and the obvious poignancy and humor of the lyrics is hypnotic. I’ve given the CD as gifts to friends– to both Jews and non-Jews -and have not only received enthusiastic thanks and praise for the CD, but requests for information on how to buy more for their friends and family!

    You must own this CD!

    What makes this collection of melodies unique is the marriage of traditional tunes with the less frequently heard songs of resistance and longing from the dark time of the Holocaust. The beautifully arranged and performed vocals are, by turns, haunting and spirited, mournful and whimsical, taking the listener through the full range of emotions. To hear Counterpoint in concert is an unforgettable experience. This equally stirring CD will leave you feeling just as proud and uplifted, as expressed by the closing words of the final song (Zog Nit Keynmol)…“We are here!”
