Notes & Reviews:

Praised by American Record Guide as the 'gold standard for American academic choirs,' the Westminster Choir has performed and recorded with virtually every major orchestra and conductor of the past 80 years. The New York Times has applauded its 'full-bodied, incisive singing.'

Musical America's 2004 Conductor of the Year, Joseph Flummerfelt and his musical artistry have been acclaimed in the world's finest concert halls for many years. He was hailed by Leonard Bernstein as 'the world's greatest choral conductor.' This Westminster Choir College reissue of Heaven to Earth features Westminster's adaptation of Barber's choral setting of his Adagio for Strings, foregoing the a cappella version for one accompanied by a small string ensemble.
