Twenty-six songs in three and four parts for equal and mixed voices by composer-members of Gordon's singing group, Village Harmony. An impressive range of musical styles, largely inspired by traditional New England shape-note music, ranging from lively fuging tunes to plaintive melodies with close-moving and often surprising harmonies. Texts from the hymns and psalms of Isaac Watts and his followers, and the poetry of Longfellow, Henry Vaughan, Rupert Brooke and Christina Rossetti, as well as original lyrics by the composers. The companion CD is comprised of recordings from a fabulous one-time collaboration of over fifty singers and instrumentalists from the Village Harmony year group past and present, featuring some of the most exciting voices we've ever sung with. The Endless Light album is characterized by an impressive range of compositional and singing styles, especially the hard-edged vocals of the New England shape-note tradition.
