When I see my favorite herb Yerba Buena twining on the cover of the CD and the first lyrics are “Fresh, clear, all is new,” I know I’m in for a treat.
I could write endlessly about the details of the new CD “Take Heart” from the Portland Threshold Voices AND I’ll challenge myself by mentioning my favorite 4…

~There is an earnest, luxurious and centered quality about their singing. They have lived with these songs for five years preparing to record (with a delay named “Covid) and you can hear them sinking into the joyful experience of singing together.
~Kri Schlafer’s utterly original melodies seem curious at first listen; when the harmonies enter they feel like they become a precious enchantment.
~Lynne Joy Nesbit’s arrangement of the 23rd Psalm offers graceful movement of harmonies lifting both familiar and less familiar lyrics.
~Patricia Hallam’s Shalom sounds like it could have been written hundreds of years ago. The dissonances that flow into the middle of the song remind us how challenging it is to achieve peace and the simple unison ending is hauntingly beautiful. And that’s just the first 4 songs.
