The universal importance of nighttime rituals is celebrated in this recording of choral music from many different traditions and eras. This is the first professional release by the GSU Singers under the direction of Deanna Joseph.
The Georgia State University Singers with Deanna Joseph were finalists in 2014 American Prize in Choral Performance.
Arrangements of five Shaker songs by Kevin Siegfried provide the structure for this album of 20th and 21st century choral works. The texts for this program explore themes of peace, a parent's love, and awe in God's creation, concluding with two motets for Advent and Christmas.
This extraordinary choir is directed by Deanna Joseph and was recorded in the warm acoustics of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church in Atlanta.
