Notes & Reviews:

'These selections, ranging from sacred masterpieces of the Renaissance to gems of the late 20th century, all had special meaning for Shaw', according to the liner notes by Nick Jones, program annotator for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. 'The care he lavished on their preparation and performance flowed from his personal need to communicate both the words and the musical meaning beyond the words. He continues to speak to us through them'.
