New Choral Works

Hear the Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola, conducted by Kent Tritle, performing "On Photography" by English composer Gavin Bryars for this New Sounds. The performance was recorded live at St. Ignatius Loyola Church in February 2008 as part of the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space concert series. There's also "Gauze Vespers" by gifted American composer Oscar Bettison. And much more. Correction: John Schaefer announces that the Bryars work was sung by Musica Sacra. The artists are actually the Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola
