Of Note for Mon. Mar. 28, 2016: Invigorating New Golden Age of Choral Music
NPR Classical calls ORA's debut recording a "contemporary twist on a 16th-century classic." This new a capella ensemble aims to highlight what their artistic director Suzi Digby heralds as "another glittering period of time for both choral writing and performing." Their debut recording, Upheld By Stillness, explores the genius of Renaissance master William Byrd alongside brand new reimaginings by contemporary composers. Hear highlights on Monday's program coming up at 11 a.m. on KUAF, your source for classical music.
