Cloudburst and Other Choral Works by Eric Whitacre

This is an ear-opening CD for those who haven't already discovered composer Eric Whitacre's music. The recording features polyphonic, mostly a cappella choral music, set to poems by a variety of poets, from e.e. cummings to Emily Dickinson to Octavio Paz. The result is an arresting soundscape with unexpected chord progressions and a unique ensemble effect. Check Our Catalog
