For more than 30 years, the San Francisco Girls Chorus has been recognized as one of the world’s most respected vocal ensembles. Joining the Chorus’ impressive discography of 12 self-produced and collaborative titles, the highly anticipated 7th solo CD, Heaven and Earth, is now available. Hear the San Francisco Girls Chorus perform some of the greatest sacred and secular repertoire ever written for treble voices!
Disc 1 Heaven: Joined by guest organist David Higgs, SFGC performs sacred music both accompanied and a cappella, including two mini-masterworks: Benjamin Britten’s Missa Brevis in D and Francis Poulenc’s Litanies à la vierge noire.
Disc 2 Earth: Centered around three new commissions by Gabriela Lena Frank, Augusta Read Thomas and Dwight Okamura, this disc expands SFGC’s musical, technical and stylistic boundaries in expressing human sorrow, joy, humor, and hope in song.
Also featuring the SFGC Alumnae Chorus, pianist Susan Soehner, and cellist Emil Miland.
