Program and Notes
Simple Gifts
The Tudor Choir
Doug Fullington, director

A follow-up to their successful CD of Shaker tunes, “Gentle Words,” The Tudor Choir expands the repertoire to include other British and American music of simple character and enduring melody.

“[The Tudor Choir’s] lovely shaping of phrases, impeccable intonation and unadorned, clean sound allow the words and music to become the Shaker “prayer language,” to free the mind from the world, to visit the soul.”
—The Living Church

"As the title suggests, ‘Simple Gifts’ is the point of departure here, with no fewer than four arrangements of Shakerism’s greatest hit. The singing from this chamber choir from in the Pacific Northwest is as graceful, unpretentious, and well-scrubbed as the music. Once again, it’s the simple gifts that turn out to be the pearls of greatest price."
—The American Record Guide
