Our American Journey
Chanticleer's 25th CD celebrates the music of America, from sacred motets by 17th century Mexican composers to shape-note hymns to newly-commissioned works on American themes. Our American Journey is a showcase of the rich traditions and also of the creative tension between unity and diversity that are inherent American music and in American life.
"Chanticleer's pastel timbre, dead-on intonation, and precise articulation are persuasive throughout..."
--The New Yorker
"Chanticleer's versatility never ceases to amaze me"
--Paul Horsley, Knight-Ridder
