Chamber Singers Release Second CD

The award-winning ECU Chamber Singers have released “Eternal Light,” their second professional compact disc recording.  Recorded in the sumptuous acoustic of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, and internationally distributed on the Gothic recording label, the recording features mostly twentieth-century sacred works for unaccompanied choir.

In addition, three selections are world premiere recordings of works for choir with single instrument obbligato featuring instrumental faculty members Christopher Grymes, clarinet; Christine Gustafson, flute.  The major premiere is a 25 minute four-movement setting of the Angus Dei by Norwegian composer Egil Hovland and featuring Christopher Ulffers, bassoon.

In an interview with distribution partner Naxos, Roger Sherman, production engineer and manager of Gothic Records, called the CD “truly one of the most beautiful recordings we have ever made.”

Recordings can be purchased through most online classical music recording distributors, including the Gothic Records website (www.gothic-catalog.com/Eternal_Light_p/g-49272.htm), or at the ECU School of Music office.
