On this disc, the most prominent new world composers of the time, Ives and Barber, are brought together with old world counterparts, Poulenc and Stravinsky, in a disc of deeply felt music expressing each composers’ perception of the spirituality of life.
This recording draws together some truly great choral pieces - Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms through to Barber’s Agnus Dei, the moving choral setting of his ever-popular Adagio for Strings. Here the most prominent new world composers of the time, Ives and Barber, are brought together with old world counterparts, Poulenc and Stravinsky, in a disc of deeply felt music expressing each composers’ perception of the spirituality of life. Straddling the two worlds is Michael Tippett’s set of spiritual settings from "A Child of Our Time".

"The Sixteen give a deeply committed and technically brilliant reading of this extremely difficult repertoire."
