New CD by the John Alexander Singers on Delos,
“American Voices,” features four Muehleisen works: Snow (The King’s Trumpeter), When All is Done, Prairie Waters by Night, and River Moons. Excerpt from Gramophone review: “Muehleisen’s When All is Done applies stirring choral shadings to a poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar about the anguish of slavery, its lonely trumpet solo complementing the ensemble’s impassioned lines.”
