Angels In The Architecture Composed by Henson. Arranged by Hogan. Performed by Voices Of Anam Cara. For Accessory. Published by Gia Publications Inc. (Catalog # CD837, UPC: 785147083726)

In this brilliant audiophile recording from James Jordan and the Voices of Anam Cara, composed of singers from his Westminster ensemble, The Westminster Williamson Voices, it is truly the angels that are in the details. Jordan selects his favorite works by the great masters of choral composition...and then pairs each work to its ideal acoustical environment. The choir is joined on the recording by organ virtuoso Ken Cowan and Eric Schweingruber, trumpet. The seven-second reverb in the Immaculate Conception Church in Trenton, New Jersey, to the pristine resonances of The Lawrenceville School Chapel, The Girard College Chapel, the Philadelphia Cathedral, and St. Clement's Church in Philadelphia provide the stunning acoustics for this musical and sonic adventure. This recording includes two works by Moses Hogan, "Wade in the Water" and "Old Time Religion," a tribute to Hogan's musical genius. The premiere recording of "My Flight for Heaven" by Blake Henson is destined to be a classic. This recording also includes one of the rare recordings of the choral masterpiece by Sandstrom, a mystical setting of "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming." Works by Morten Lauridsen ("Sure on This Shining Night"), James Whitbourn ("In Splendoribus Sanctorum"), Felix Mendelssohn ("Psalm 100"), and other master composers make this an essential recording for any lover of the choral arts.
