This edition of the Organ Loft radio program with host Roger Sherman was first aired in January, 1995. It includes excerpts from The Compline Choir's CD, "Feathers of Green Gold" (CD 7003) with an annotated version of the Compline service, and an interview with Peter Hallock about the history of the Compline service at St. Mark's.

Since its founding in 1954, the all-male Compline Choir has sung the medieval Office of Compline in a dark Cathedral on Sunday nights. The success of this service and its appeal to young people has sparked a worldwide revival of interest in Compline.

The King's Singers
This is one of the most unusual CDs to come across our desk in a long time. It has only six pieces, and the total length is only 20 minutes. We think the Billy Joel lullaby is worth the price of admission, but for others it might be "Blackbird." Highly recommended.

Winner of the Grammy® Award for Best Choral Performance

Recorded live at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

The War Requiem was written in 1962 for the consecration of the rebuilt Coventry Cathedral and was first performed there in May 1962. Coventry Cathedral had been destroyed during the Battle of Britain in World War II. The work received immediate critical acclaim and was hailed as a masterpiece.

A life-long pacifist, Britten wrote his Requiem as a statement against the horrors of war. In it, he intersperses the traditional Latin Requiem texts with works by Wilfred Owen, a poet who died in battle in World War I.

Exquisitely sung and beautifully recorded, this CD offers some of the most heartfelt singing we’ve ever heard. Perfect intonation, sumptuous sound, and familiar tunes---this is Dale Warland at his best. Includes “Deep River,” Simple Gifts, “The Water is Wide,” Beautiful River (“Shall we gather at the river”) “We gather together,” and many more. Full text and notes on each song.

Within its first month, Harvest Home became our best-selling CD ever, and hit Billboard’s Top 20 Classical Chart.
