Notes & Reviews:

On this disc, the most prominent new world composers of their time, Ives and Barber, are brought together with two old world counterparts, Poulenc and Stravinsky, in a disc of deeply felt music expressing each composer's perception of the spirituality of life. 'The Sixteen give a deeply committed and technically brilliant reading of this extremely difficult repertoire.'-Gramophone
