Corridors of Light offers world-premiere recordings of four choral and orchestral works by revered American composer and choral director William Ferris (1937-2000). The generously programmed, album with nearly 72 minutes of music is the first commercially distributed recording of a significant selection of Ferris’s orchestral compositions. The pieces, all written in the 1960s and 1990s, exhibit the composer’s distinctive sound, characterized by wistful, playful, and passionate melodies. Ferris himself conducts two of the performances.

“This music deserves a wider audience, and perhaps the existence of this recording at such a reasonable price — nearly bargain basement! — will encourage other singers, chorus directors, and orchestra conductors to program it and seek out yet others of Ferris’ compositions.”
 
Marvin J. Ward - Classical Voice of North Carolina

“Anyone not very familiar with Ferris or his music should listen to this and, I believe, would wonder if it is time that . . . Ferris also be counted among the truly great.”
 
Daniel Coombs -Audiophile Audition.com
 

“...anyone who enjoys the English vocal-choral tradition of Delius, Vaughan Williams, and Walton will find these works immediately and deeply engaging, and should not miss this very moving release.”
 
Paul A Snook - Fanfare

 "Even the sole non-vocal piece in this collection, Bristol Hilb (1969) for string orchestra, is full of an unbridled, Barber-like lyricism that favours emotional directness over orchestrational pyrotechnics. When words are involved, whatever the language - compare Salvatore Quasimoto’s Ed e subito sera (1965) or Stephen Spender’s "The Truly Great", the basis for Ferris’s Corridors of Light (1993) - music emanates organically from the text, the relationship between the two becoming truly transparent, the music’s winding structure enveloping the words in a comforting harmonic language."
