Sacred Places

Catalogue No: SKYLARK MUSIC SKY0602

Elektra unveils an eloquent array of sacred works for treble voices, with contemporary pieces by composers from Hungary, Canada, the US, and Spain. Sacred Places includes György Orbán’s Mass No. 6; psalm settings by the late Srul Irving Glick; Eleanor Daley’s assured Os Justi; the haunting lullaby Durme, Durme arranged by Alice Parker; the glorious Set Me as a Seal by Richard Nance; Eva Ugalde’s dramatic Miserere; and Gwyneth Walker’s I Thank You God. This moving collection is the very essence of Elektra—transcendent harmonies, thrilling melodies, and a full vocal spectrum.

with Stephen Smith, piano; Dawn Haylett, french horn
