The Venus Symphonic Womens Choir is a powerful, flexible and exquisitely-recorded 33-voice female choral library for professional scoring and arrangement. It includes pure vowels, classic Latin and Slavonic (Orthodox Russian) content, as well as a large collection of choral effects (shouts, sweeps, clusters, drones, whispers and more). We spent 10 days in our favorite church recording the 33-voice women’s chorus, featuring top notch talent from Volti, SF Symphony Chorus and the SF Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Venus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. It includes 2 mic positions (stage and hall) so composers have the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Venus easily into their mix. Venus has risen in the night sky, to join her men’s choral counterpart, The Mars Symphonic Men’s Choir.
