Their recordings include a collaboration with the Santa Barbara Symphony in the concert presentation and recording of "Amerindia" by Heitor Villa-Lobos, as well as seven highly acclaimed compact discs that include the premiere recording of the organ version of Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna" (available at CD Baby).
Their performances have been reviewed in a number of papers. The Santa Barbara News Press noted "the group's glorious sense of an ensemble voice." The LA Weekly raved that DBS is "an excellent small chorus," and the Los Angeles Times said that the choir's performance of Morten Lauridsen's music was "sung with loving sensitivity."
The group rehearses and performs several concerts each season in Southern California. Tours have included performances in the UK and Costa Rica.
