Cantus programming at its finest represents a great mix of styles and influences. On their latest release they decided to showcase all this variety on one recording. Included is a new commission from Lee Hoiby paired with a "Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel)" by Billy Joel. They include early 20th century Russian sacred music next to early 21st century American sacred music. They are two show-stoppers - the Smokey Robinson tune "Who's Loving You" and "I Can't Tarry" a rousing African-American spiritual An amusing faux-Finnish piece precedes a semi-theatrical setting of "Casey at the Bat" and the lively programming keeps you listening from beginning to end, just as it does in their acclaimed live concerts.
