About

“I frankly was so captivated by the performances – above all, the beautiful sound and clear articulation of the parts – that I barely noticed the change from one composer to another.” – Jerry Kuderna, San Francisco Classical Voice

Grammy Award-winning choirmaster Ragnar Bohlin leads his professional chamber choir, Cappella SF, in a stunning programme of choral music by two of America’s leading contemporary composers.

In this – maestro Bohlin’s second recording with Cappella SF on Delos – his select 24-voice ensemble delivers these two modern masters’ lovely and accessible music to perfection. We get two choice choral song cycles from Conrad Susa: Six Joyce Songs, Vol. II, as well as Landscapes and Silly Songs (with texts by Federico García Lorca). David Conte contributes another winning cycle, A Whitman Triptych – plus a pair of appealing pieces: The Composer and Invocation and Dance.

This captivating ensemble lays claim to an abundance of choral virtues: gogeous tone, perfect sectional balance, needle-sharp intonation, and crystal-clear diction, to name but a few. Choral aficionados everywhere owe it to
themselves to become acquainted with these remarkable composers, as well as with a group of supreme choral artists equal to the very best.
