Winter Solstice: A Budding Morrow

WINTER SOLSTICE: A BUDDING MORROW is an ECMC concert CD recorded live over two concert dates on Friday, December 4, 2009 at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament in Manhattan, New York; and Sunday, December 13, 2009 at The Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity in Brooklyn, New York.

Join the ECMC and guest artists organist Paolo Bordignon and award winning mezzo soprano Rosalie Grace Sullivan as we mark the solstice with the music of composers of our time.  Come and experience Maurice Duruflé’s transcendent and ethereal Messe ‘Cum Jubilo’ and celebrate the music of composers important to the life of our chorus and our city as we sing some of the finest and most poignant works of contemporary repertoire for men’s chorus.  Featuring works by Ned RoremLee HoibyStephen PaulusMark AdamoDavid Hurd, and Eric Whitacre.
