Notes & Reviews:

"Yet another side of Rorem is represented by the works for choir and organ. If you've read the Diaries it may seem odd to think of Rorem as a religious composer. He's admitted he doesn't believe in God but in the sincerity of belief itself. "Arise, shine" is an exhilarating invocation; and, from the Seven Motets, "God is gone up" contains a fascinating variety of ways of setting "alleluia" and "Praise him who was crucified" sounds convincingly pious. Overall this is a revelatory corpus of choral works, with or without organ, which ought to be of interest to cathedral choirs. Carson Cooman contributes effective organ solos where, like the choral pieces, everything is refreshingly different." -Gramophone
