Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEW:

"It's always good to see a company branch out and produce a disc of music by a composer other than Bach, Beethoven and the Boys. Adolphus Hailstork has written numerous works for chorus, solo voice, chamber ensembles, band and orchestra... Hailstork knows the art of building to a climax without sounding obvious about it. His vocal lines are intricately crafted and very grateful to the ear... above all, his music is vocal... the entire disc is done a cappella, so it's no mean achievement..." (American Record Guide)
