Notes & Reviews:

This major survey of American a cappella choral works, sung by the outstanding Saint Louis Chamber Chorus, covers different traditions of American chamber choirs from the art song to the spiritual. With music from the late 19th to 21st centuries, this disc contains a wide range of American choral compositions including Roy Harris' virtuoso "Symphony for Voices," William Schuman's "Declaration Chorale" (written for the United Nations in 1971), and Melissa Dunphy's immensely powerful "What do you think I fought for at Omaha Beach?"
