A collection of sacred music by Arvo Pärt, Julia Wolfe, Caroline Shaw, interspersed with songs from the Laudario di Cortona, Italy in arrangements by Paul Hillier.   

The six laude are part of an extensive collection that was compiled during the 13th century, known as the Laudario di Cortona and rediscovered in 1876 under a stairway. Ars Nova first performed music by Julia Wolfe (b. 1958) when they premiered her Thirst in 2009. This was part of Water, a larger commission from all three Bang On A Can composers: Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe. Guard My Tongue was written around the same time - the text is derived from Psalm 34. Caroline Shaw (b. 1982) is a New York composer, both solo and group singer, and violinist. Her Partita for 8 Voices won the Pulitzer Prize in 2013. Among the many songs Arvo Pärt has written, the 6 songs on this disc concern stories and apparitions, commemorations and psalms all from a sacred viewpoint.
