Notes & Reviews:

Jacob Avshalomov is one of the great veterans of American music. He studied with his father Aaron, as well as Ernst Toch, Bernard Rogers and Aaron Copland. His orchestral, instrumental and choral works are full of classic American melodies, rhythms and harmonies; in short, the kind of music "they don't write anymore." This disc features his choral music, much of which is based on texts by his wife Doris. These works all fall into the great American choral tradition of Randall Thompson and Copland.
