distinguished catalogue of works which have made an essential contribution to the world of contemporary

American choral music. We situate this important element of our history within the broader context of

American choral music in the 20th century, with a selection of works to include Bernstein’s Chichester

Psalms, Barber’s Reincarnations, the Five Shaker Lyrics of Karen Tarlow, and works of Boston-based

composer Rodney Lister.
