"Anyone who appreciates first-class vocal ensemble performance will happily hear this–and hear it again and again."
- David Vernier, Classic Today

The program of this album was conceived for Good Friday as well as the Skylark Vocal Ensemble's international debut in London where they wanted to highlight a uniquely diverse blend of American traditional hymns. These hymns are complemented with works by Hildegard von Bingen, Francis Poulenc, and many many more composers dedicated to sacred polyphony for choirs.
