"Choral music has always been at the core of my work as a composer. This was the first music that I wrote, and it is to this form of expression that I always return. I have written many different kinds of choral music over the years - original pieces on secular themes, settings of religious texts, children's songs, and arrangements of folk material. This CD takes us on journeys through different times and places, from the ancient Near East through the lands of the Mediterranean to Latin America and the Canadian Arctic. But whatever the style of the music and whatever its geographical or historical point of reference, it is the sound of human voices singing in combination with each other which never fails to excite and inspire."
