Hearing Voices

Let’s hear what kind of conversation these varied musical voices can have with each other, and with our own inner voices. David Garland shares vocal recordings old and new from various cultures: Indian instruments accompany a choir singing Gregorian chant; a Dutch cellist plays with a Sardinian chorus and Senegalese soloist; centuries-old Norwegian hymns are sung to improvised organ accompaniment; the delicate abstractions of voice with piano and explored; an early blues singer, a contemporary avant gardist, and Brazilian songwriter all sing with guitars -- and more.
