Product Description

When Musica Sacra performed each of these works in concert in May 2011, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to produce our first recording in more than 20 years. Most of the composers on this recording are people I have known well. These people are intertwined with my own life in various ways; and I have admired the work and voice of each for quite some time. I have had the privilege of performing works by Ranjbaran (my colleague at Juilliard) and Convery (we attended Juilliard together) in previous concerts. Zachary Patten and I have a shared mentor who introduced him to me. Elliot Levine, an established vocalist and composer, has been a friend and colleague for many years, and I have used his works a number of times in liturgical situations. Like Levine, Kernis is another composer whose works I have wanted to explore; commissioned by my friend Philip Brunelle and his Plymouth Music Series in Minneapolis, Effortlessly, Love Flows has been in my must perform box for too long! Theofanidis caught my eye when he sent me Messages to Myself, and ever since receiving it I have looked for an opportunity to perform it! I was awestruck upon hearing Christina Whitten Thomas' Choral de Betes performed by my colleague Dennis Keene and his Voices of Ascension. I blush to say that Michael Gilbertson was a student in my choral conducting class at Juilliard. He has already been picked up by a major publisher, and is now at Yale. Daniel Brewbaker has been a dear soul in my circle, and a presence in my life since we were students at Juilliard. Yet, I have never had an opportunity until our concert in May 2011 to perform his work. So these composers are near and dear to me, as people and as artists. I ve selected this lineup with several principles in mind. In some cases, contrast; in others, flow of similarity. In all cases, I have considered text to be of prime importance. Welcome to this recording of beautiful, thoughtful, elegant, thought-provoking, and soul- touching music. [Kent Tritle]

One of America's leading choral conductors, KENT TRITLE was appointed music director of Musica Sacra in 2008, succeeding founder Richard Westenburg, who designated Tritle as his successor. He is also Director of Cathedral Music and Organist at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York, as well as Music Director of the Oratorio Society of New York. In addition, Kent is Director of Choral Activities at the Manhattan School of Music and is a member of the graduate faculty of The Juilliard School. He is the host of the weekly radio program The Choral Mix with Kent Tritle on WQXR, which explores the choral music genre and the breadth of activity in the choral community. An acclaimed organ virtuoso, Tritle is also the organist of the New York Philharmonic. He founded the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space series at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, an acclaimed concert series now entering its 23rd season. From 1996 to 2004 he has served as Music Director of the Emmy-nominated Dessoff Choirs, winners of the ASCAP/ Chorus America award for adventurous programming of contemporary music.

Since its founding in 1964 by conductor Richard Westenburg, the mission of MUSICA SACRA has been to create definitive, professional choral performances of the highest caliber for a wide audience. It supports its mission by presenting concerts; Recording, commissioning, and performing new choral works; and educating audiences, students and the general public in the appreciation and history of choral music. In addition to an affinity for Baroque music, Musica Sacra performs in other genres as well, from the earliest Gregorian chant to new works by such leading contemporary composers as Benjamin Britten and Dave Brubeck.

[Kent Tritle is] the brightest star in New York's choral music world. --The New York Times
