Compilation CDs: "To Life We Sing!" Print

"Bella Voce: To Life We Sing!"  - Audio CDs You Don't Want to Miss

Bella Voce announces the release of a two-disc compilation CD's celebrating five years of music performed by Bella Voce Young Women's Choir.

Picking the tracks for this was extremely difficult --yet very rewarding-- because there is simply so much wonderful music Bella has performed over the past five years! Both CD's has over 20 pieces, each including music from every Bella concert we've performed.  These gems are primarily from our spring concerts, so most have not been released previously on the "Bella Christmas" CD's or on the "Best of Bella" disc.  Play list of Volume 1 highlights international & upbeat music, while Volume 2 provides powerful and contemplative selections.  Both offer a satisfying choral mix that you'll enjoy hearing over and over. Click the "Read More" link to see a complete playlist.

Order your personal copy today. Buy some as gifts! The price for each CD is $18. "Not available in any store, at any price!" To order send and email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 507.269.7114.
