      The CD "Live at Saint Peter's" by the John Link Vocal Quintet is now
      available. It features three compositions by John Link: Suite for Quintet,
      Hymn in C, and Russian Siciliana. The John Link Vocal Quintet demonstrates
      its authority to sing the music of various genres by performing movie
      themes by Ennio and Andrea Morricone; jazz tunes by Chick Corea, Bill
      Evans, and Earl Zindars; classical compositions by Claude Debussy, Modeste
      Mussorgsky, and Erik Satie; and a hymn by Brahe and Taylor. All of the
      arrangments are by John Link.

      The John Link Vocal Quintet specializes in singing the originals of John
      Link as well as his vocalise arrangements of instrumental classical and
      jazz compositions. The performers on the CD are John Link (guitar and
      baritone), Raïssa Dorff (soprano), Kelly Elenwood (soprano), Alex
      Greenshields (tenor), and Christopher Renquist (baritone). Each member of
      the quintet contributes vocal improvisations, and all but one of the
      compositions are sung without words. The CD was recorded in March of 1998
      at Saint Peter's Church in the Citicorp building in New York City.
