•      Canto Armonico’s membership has varied from 14 to 26 singers depending on its repertoire choices; the group now includes select young professional choral singers from the Boston area along with graduate and undergraduate students from Harvard University, New England Conservatory of Music, Boston University, Wellesley College, and the Longy School of Music. Canto Armonico is unique among Boston choruses in remaining an educational group: students learn from their more established peers.

•      Bach’s Clavierübung III is a compendium of different ways of setting hymns from the Lutheran tradition – Bálint Karosi’s recording contains the original melodies in harmonisation of Bach, Schütz, Schein, Scheidt and Praetorius besides the organ work, too.

•      Bálint Karosi has won awards at many international organ competitions, including first prizes at the International J. S. Bach Competition in Leipzig.
