On October 19, 2018, Oregon Repertory Singers (ORS) under the direction of Ethan Sperry will release their newest CD: Shadows on the Stars: Music by Morten Lauridsen and Pacific NW Composers. I’m delighted to have ORS’ fantastic live performance recording of my work River Moons included on this CD, along with works by several Pacific NW composer colleagues, including Giselle Wyers, Joan Szymko, and Stacey Philipps, amongst others. The feature work on the disc is Morten Lauridsen’s Madrigali, and also includes his Sure on This Shining Night. The CD is on the esteemed Gothic label (G-49318) and will be available worldwide on Oct. 19, 2018. I’ll add a link to this space where you can purchase the CD once it’s available.
