Vincent Persichetti

Conductor: James Morrow

Orchestra: University of Texas Chamber Orchestra

Choir: University of Texas Chamber Singers

This anthology brings together representative works from the mainstream of
contemporary American choral music. Charles Ives's Psalm 90 evokes a mood

chorus and orchestra, composer John Corigliano sings of the joys of youth.
