Music by the young American composer Eric Whitacre, some dazzling unaccompanied vocal writing from his record "Cloudburst." Also, music from the lauded record "Officium" by the Hilliard Ensemble and saxophone-wielding Jan Garbarek. Plus, Anonymous 4 sings Hildegard von Bingen and music by Alfred Schnittke - his "Collected Songs Where Every Verse Is Filled With Grief." And more.
