Order 2-CD Set

The Hilliard Ensemble interpret new works for vocal ensemble. Many of the pieces presented have been written specifically for the ensemble. Includes the music of Arvo Pärt, James McMillan, Morton Feldman and Ivan Moody. "Britain's Hilliard Ensemble dares to stitch together threads of traditions from medieval, postmodern and post-minimalist sources, while avoiding trivialities. The quartet maneuvers with a commanding collective voice, enriched by dynamic sensitivity and masterful way with inflection." -- Los Angeles Times
