Hear selections from new releases with our weekly Choral Featured Album Fridays at 11 a.m. central on the Choral Stream.
This week on the Choral Featured Album, we present Impermanence, the new release from Boston-based vocal ensemble Lorelei. Comprising 19 tracks, the record includes a broad range of music, with works from the 12th century Codex Calixtinus, 20th century composer Toru Takemitsu, and more. Read more about the album (from the Lorelei website):
Migration of peoples across borders has shaped the human experience for millennia. Whether physical or metaphysical, humanity survives by way of continuous movement — our culture, beliefs, and histories are marked by impermanence. This album is an exploration of that concept — traveling between early and contemporary repertoires, based in texts, melodies, and timelines that refuse to be conveniently pinned down by norms.
