ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With Heart and Voice: Christmas Across America continues Madrigalia's explorations of American sacred music as it focuses on the rich musical repertoire of the Christmas season. The works of such well-known composers as Leo Sowerby, Daniel Pinkham, Emma Lou Diemer and Robert Ward are presented along with those of a new generation of composers represented by Cary Ratcliff, Morten Lauridsen, David Hogan and K. Lee Scott.

These prominent composers have set Advent and Christmas texts in a variety of styles. Some have sought inspiration from European or ethnic roots while others have been moved by more uniquely American sounds and rhythms. From new-romanticism to folk songs, from spirituals to aleatory music-- the result is a living musical culture in which a new generation of composers writes sensitively for the contemporary American choir.

Each of the composers and arrangers represented here has contributed substantially to our unique musical tradition. There are many other American composers who are equally deserving. Madrigalia hopes that this recording will help to preserve the best of our rich heritage for future generations to admire and enjoy.
