ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
new, studio-recorded CD, Night Draws Near. This exploration of the mysteries of life and death features music inspired by the traditions of Halloween, All Soul’s Day, and El Día de los Muertos.

Our CD was recorded in the dark of night in late July, and gave rise to a new level of singing together. Highlights include two Shakespearean settings (Double, Double, Toil and Trouble by the eclectic Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyärvi and Full Fathom Five by Ralph Vaughan Williams), John Tavener’s Funeral Ikos, four settings of Lorca poetry, and music from the Renaissance, Mexican, and shape-note traditions.
