Robert Kyr

Biography

Born: 1952   Country: USA  
“Robert Kyr is among the most prolific composers of his generation, having composed [12 symphonies, 3 chamber symphonies, 3 violin concerti, and much chamber music,] in addition to [numerous] vocal works. His choral music is distinguished by a warmly compelling lyricism, as well as by a contrapuntal mastery that arises from his love of early music, especially the work of Dufay, Josquin Des Prez, and above all, Bach." - from Choral Music Read more in the Twentieth Century by Nick Strimple.
