This new album features masterworks, sacred anthems, a folk hymn, a song from the Broadway stage and selections from some of the most eminent film composers of our day. Included are jubilant renditions of “Ode to Joy” from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Ennio Morricone’s “Nella Fantasia” from "The Mission" and one of the choirs most frequently requested anthems, “The Holy City.”

In this audio interview, director Mack Wilberg talks about the music choices, inviting tenor soloist Stanford Olsen, the most humbling aspect of working with the choir, and the joy of performing and recording some of the world's most enduring (and difficult!) works for choir and orchestra.

That’s this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
