ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alice Parker's life-work has been in choral and vocal music, combining composing, conducting and teaching in a creative balance. Her arrangements with Robert Shaw of folksongs, hymns and spirituals form an enduring repertoire for choruses all around the world. She continues composing in many forms, from operas to cantata, sacred anthems to secular dances, song cycles to string quartets.

This anniversary collection focuses on her work in the folk tradition and ranges from settings out of her early years arranging with Robert Shaw, to spirituals, to her present day compositions in this genre based on texts by Brian Wren, Gracia Grindl and Carl P. Daw, Jr. The folk songs span the globe from America, to Ireland, Israel and Argentina.
