Almost like a song | 1999

Almost like a song is a compilation of favourites with both the audience and the choir since its inception in January 1992. Former members were therefore invited to participate in the recording of the CD. The repertoire covers a wide spectrum, from sacred and secular classical works to madrigals, folk songs, and arrangements of popular and light music. At the time of recording this CD Palissander consisted of 16 members.
