Eric Whitacre: Choral Music
NAXOS AMERICAN, 2010
Eric Whitacre's dedication to the beauty of sound, paired with exquisite texts, results in a poetic combination that creates a unique sonic experience. These works are existential choral moments, beautifully crafted, and harmonised to express a compressed moment in time. Such sublime sonorities transcend descriptions such as 'warm', 'glistening' or 'shimmering', although these features of his choral works do suggest affinities with the sound ...

The Queen's Delight: 17th Century English Ballads & Dances
Harmonia Mundi Fr., 1997
This attractive package comes with the sort of lustrous and vivid cover art reproductions Harmonia Mundi is known for, as well as a 69-page book of notes in four languages, complete with real binding. Musically, though, these studied historically correct performances are flat. They lack a sense of fun and daring. The dances are a bit pedestrian. And though there may be no way of positively historically verifying that these, mostly anonymous, ...

Gate 5 Ensemble
New World Records, 2004
Harry Partch’s compositions of the 1940s—and to some extent his work in general—have remained until recently an unwritten chapter in the history of American music. And yet it was these very pieces—the collection of four works he would later collectively entitle The Wayward—that brought him to the attention of the New York musical world. His concert of these pieces for the League of Composers (April 22, 1944) established for him a small ...

Apollo s Fire conjures early 19th-century rural Americana with an evocative journey through traditional folk songs, fiddle tunes, barn dances, and the indispensable Old Time revivalist meetings.
