ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE ERNST FAMILY
The Ernst Family Singers are based in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The group currently consists of parents Gregg and Jennie Ernst and eight of their ten children. They sing anything from solos to eight part harmony, in styles ranging from early Renaissance music to modern day spirituals, folk, and light jazz. Most of their music is sung a cappella with occasional piano or guitar accompaniment. The genetic similarity of their voices gives a harmonious bled rare in unrelated voices.

The Family started singing after Joshua`s voice changed in 2001. With four-part harmony now possible, Jennie thought it would be fun to work on a bit of choral singing. Positive audience response convinced the family that theirs was a gift to be shared, and share it they have.

Members of the Ernst Family have become known for a variety of other endeavours as well. Gregg is a blacksmith, and it was in his shop that the ironwork for the Bluenose and Bluenose II, which is depicted on the Canadian dime, was forged. Gregg has also received worldwide acclaim as a strength athlete. He competed in `The World`s Strongest Man` competitions in the Canary Islands and Iceland in 1990 and 1991, and still holds the official world record for the most weight ever lifted by a man, at 5340 lbs.
