Notes & Reviews:

Ross Lee Finney's Psalm pieces are contemporary settings of the Ainsworth Psalter- an inspirational collection of hymns that was carried by the pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620. Finney wrote of this collection: "These melodies are among America's greatest folk heritage, influencing sacred singing through each singing." Andrew Clark is the Director of Choral Activities and Senior Lecturer on Music at Harvard University. He also serves as Music Director and Conductor of the Harvard Glee Club, the Radcliffe Choral Society, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Museum. He has long been praised by critics for his ensembles' outstanding performances. The Boston Globe called his choirs "first rate," Opera News said his ensembles were "beautifully blended," and the Worcester Telegram wrote that his performances achieve "passion, conviction, adrenaline, and coherence."
