Review: A most unusual album. One of Bobby's concert staples when he did small

concerts was to pull about 12 members of the audience onstage and teach them

small vocal 'parts'. He would then conduct his 'voicestra'.

On this one, he takes 12 talented professional vocalists and makes a recording of

the same concept. Each 'circlesong' has no intelligible lyrics, and the music goes

in a round.

The effect is somewhat hypnotic. I find it very meditative, like some of the

baroque music. I enjoy listening to it while doing detailed work on the computer.
