Review on The National's "I Am Easy To Find" Album

"And like Cohen, the National have recruited some of the best singers out, among them Lisa Hannigan, Mina Tindle, Kate Stables, Sharon Van Etten, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, whose spotlight “Dust Swirls in Strange Light” benches Berninger all together. Most revelatory of all is Gail Ann Dorsey, David Bowie’s longtime bassist and backing singer, who heralds the album’s new direction midway through opener “You Had Your Soul With You.”"

Review on The National's "I Am Easy To Find" Album

"Lushly furnished with strings and digitally manipulated guitars, mercurial rhythms and a chorus of guest-starring vocalists (including Sharon Van Etten, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Lisa Hannigan, Mina Tindle and David Bowie collaborator Gail Ann Dorsey), the album explores vignettes of tenderness, fear and intimacy. Weaving voices together, its story carries personal and political entanglements which feel both timeless and timely."

Review on Silent Voices Album

“The truth of Silent Voices is that the Brooklyn Youth Chorus displays tremendous musicianship, stylistic sensitivity, and vocal flexibility while powerfully demanding that listeners confront hard truths about racism, gender roles and discrimination, ageism, the social responsibilities of politics, and displaced populations. Period.”

I Care If You Listen on Silent Voices: If You Listen

"Their powerful, moving spoken words glided seamlessly into song as they launched into a beautiful array of choral compositions. It was evident that the Brooklyn Youth Chorus thoroughly enjoyed the performance, particularly Shaina Taub’s stunning Huddled Masses (for which they were joined by Taub on the piano) and Shelley Washington’s The Farthest, a lively and sonically wide-ranging meditation on striving for change and for equity."

Black Mountain Songs The Album

"Black Mountain Songs earned a rave review in the Times—and when you hear the astonishingly secure performance of the young singers, who have been tasked with executing some formidably complex choral textures, you immediately understand why."
