Each week, PARMA has the pleasure of not only releasing powerful works by our artists, but also seeing the positive impact that these works have on listeners. Read on for a selection of what the press had to say about the latest releases from Navona Records.

SPIRITS IN BONDAGE
BORN

“If you enjoy choral music, this is one you don’t want to overlook.”

Classical Candor on BORN by The Crossing

FROM WILDERNESS

“At times the sounds are intense and complex, and at others they’re deeply simple and peaceful, creating a fascinating and multifaceted sound world.”

CD Hotlist on FROM WILDERNESS by Choral Arts Initiative

CHARM, PASSION, AND ACROBATICS

“Impressionist gems by Désiré-Émile Inghelbrecht perhaps sparkle the brightest.”

BBC Magazine on CHARM, PASSION, AND ACROBATICS by Misha Galaganov

AMERICAN SCENES

Celebrating the Fourth by Samuel Livingston from AMERICAN SCENES featured on Spotify’s “Classical New Releases” playlist

HAMLET

“Even though we’re all familiar with Hamlet, we’ve never heard it presented quite like this, and the 9 international soloists singing the lead roles adds even more appeal to the classic that’s also very contemporary.”

BORN

Composer Edie Hill‘s Spectral Spirits: IV. Passenger Pigeon from BORN by The Crossing featured on Tidal’s “Choral Harmonies” playlist
