Notes and Editorial Reviews

Let Me Fly showcases the extraordinary talents of the University of South Dakota Chamber Singers in a compilation of American choral music under the direction of Dr. David Holdhusen. The album, recorded from 2014 to 2016, primarily draws on two mainstays of contemporary American choral repertoire - traditional folk song and spiritual arrangements and new works featuring a lyrical, lush harmonic language. It is the traditional works which form the true heart of the collection. Beloved favorites like Elijah Rock, Shenandoah, Dixie, Windham and Go, Tell it on the Mountain are given fresh interpretations through expert arrangements. ...
