EDITORS’ NOTES

These stars of the classical crossover circuit demonstrate their eclecticism on this album, organized around themes of ardor. Thus, Gloria Estefan’s “Don’t Wanna Lose You” (recast as “Si Voy a Perderte”) shares a setlist with a take on Beethoven’s “Himno de la Alegría” (a.k.a. “Ode to Joy”). This time around, smooth strings and stirring percussion support the baritone and tenors in the group, with the occasional accordion riff (“Volver”) or piano lick (“Eres Tu”) helping to distinguish individual arrangements. Overall, the group is in top form on this diverse survey of popular song.
