Recorded by the renowned Westminster Choir College`s Williamson Voices, conducted by James Jordan, this CD explores many choral sound worlds, from the Ola Gjeilo `Spheres,` to the stunning work for women`s choir, Mendelssohn`s `Veni Domine,` to `She Weeps Over Rahoon` by Eric Whitacre, to the joyful `Jubilate Deo` of Benjamin Britten and the `Kyrie` from Tomás Luis de Victoria`s 1604 Requiem. Certain music, certain composers, and certain performances have a way of `tearing a hole` into our spiritual core, deepening our lives and perhaps even bringing new meaning to what we do and how we live. Gerard Manley Hopkins called that place our `Inscape.` The music for this CD has that common thread in that all the pieces, in some way, provide an illuminative hole, through both sound and text, into perhaps a deeper understanding of life and living. And the remarkable Westminster Williamson Voices choral ensemble gives composers their most honest voice and deepens the lives of all who listen.
 

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
