Notes & Reviews:

This is the first in a series recorded at the Washington National Cathedral featuring new American choral music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The singing is as warm, graceful, and spiritually- charged as the music; and the engineers have done a very good job of bringing Washington's cavernous, highly reverberant National Cathedral to heel. The occasional solo line heads for the ether and stays there. Everything else sounds radiant and very present. Gracious, accessible music is more than capable of speaking for itself.
