Here’s what they have to say about it:
There is a special sound to a traditional English boy’s choral ensemble — solemn lows, angelic highs and an overwhelming innocence that harkens back to the days of youth and purity. With Mercury, we managed to capture this unique quality as we painstakingly sampled a full boy’s choral ensemble (ages 8-13) in the same large hall in which we recorded our Olympus choirs.
Mercury will feature 42 staccatos & 42 sustaining marcatos both with 4x round-robin, 18 tempo-syncing Latin poly-syllabic sustains with phrase-synchronus polyphonic legato, unique poly-staccatos, dynamic true legato vowels with real-time speed control from fluid portamento to tight, drone and whispering chants, trills, sweeps, swells and other choral effects. You’ll also find two exquisite soloists (soprano/younger and alto/older), each with a wide range of poly-syllabic phrases, staccatos and fluid true legato vowel sustain.
