Notes & Reviews:

Described by Choir and Organ Magazine as "[music] to enliven the programmes of choirs anywhere", the sacred choral works of American composer Carson Cooman have been widely performed and commissioned. This disc includes a sampling of the music, broadly organized by the structure of the liturgical year. Ranging in character from the Christmas-filled exuberance of "New World Carols: An American Christmas Triptych" to the mystical Trinitarian contemplation of "Be Present, Holy Trinity," Cooman’s music creates a sense of "sacred space" in it setting of both familiar and unfamiliar texts from all eras.
