Directed by Kristina G. Boerger

Amasong is an inclusive women's chorus that brings together women from all lifestyles and experience in the pursuit of choral excellence. Largely a cappella, though several of the tracks are judiciously accompanied (e.g., the horns, trombones and bells of "Ave: Meditation on Two Marian Chants"), this recording integrates works from a variety of cultures, be it from the World War II Jewish ghettoes of Lithuania ("Unter Dayne Vayse Shtern") or "Strange Fruit," written for Billie Holliday. The interpretation is exclusively Amasong's (as directed by Kristina Boerger, their founder), though thoroughly consistent with classical values in structure and arrangement. A 1998 GLAMA winner.
