Framed by Thompson’s understated favourites Alleluia and Fare Well, the programme includes Bernstein’s Missa brevis, Copland’s early set of four motets, and—of course—Barber’s inimitable Agnus Dei.

After success of the first LP "The Passion Factory" with the internationally ranked single "The Desert Place", the twins, Sven Dohrow and Ronny Schreinzer immediately to work for their 2nd album "Modern Lifestyle" (1982), to further develop the emerging success that made. Early in 1983 the twins flew then for the first time to television shows in foreign countries and achieved a big breakthrough after three appearances in the Italian television there. The single "Face to face, heart to heart" came right off the bat in the Italian top ten and remained there for several months. Also in the United States, the twins were published again and reached the almost unbelievable position 14 on the US Billboard dance charts with this title. (German-English ~ Bing Translator)
