I am not a terribly verbose person and I'm a good writer, either. I wish I could express how exquisite Octarium's music is - the beauty of the music, the phrasing, the synchronicity of the singers - 8 voices as one But these words are like saying that the Grand Canyon is big or amazing or beautiful. Words cannot do Octarium and their music justice. We are incredibly lucky that they exist, that Krista Blackwood, despite all odds and absolutely no funding, is able to keep this chorale group together. They sang for a fundraiser for a church in my neighborhood in freezing cold (the sanctuary was 42 degrees) and the music brought tears to my eyes. Do yourself a favor: Check out their website and buy a CD and transport yourself to heaven.
