Acrostic Song from 'Final Alice'

5:45
  solo soprano: Sarah Leonard  
  whisper chorus: Fiona Clarke, Nicola-Jane Kemp  


This collection of American choral music spanning the 20th century features familiar and less well-known composers, from the lyrical traditionalism of Barber by way of Bernstein and Copland to the counterpoint, rhythmic verve and neo-classicism of Irving Fine. The disc finishes with the dreamily haunting Acrostic Song from Final Alice by David del Tredici.

" the whole programme is delivered with polish."
