Notes and Editorial Reviews

The resident chorale of Disney Hall, recognized as one of the world s premier choruses, pays tribute to the late mystic minimalist, Henryk Gorecki, composer of the best-selling Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.

The composer died on November 12, 2010, and this recording was driven by an urgent interest in preserving and appreciating his choral works.

Miserere showcases the extraordinary emotional power of the full 110-voice Los Angeles Master Chorale singing unaccompanied.

Featured on this release are the first major label recordings of both Five Marian Songs and Lobgesang.

R E V I E W S:

"The Los Angeles Master Chorale and conductor Grant Gershon have just released
Read more Miserere, a gorgeous album including three of the composer's a cappella works... Miserere is a quiet, contemplative record, beautifully sung. It creates a calm and welcoming space — a perfect antidote to busy, disjointed lives too often led without repose." -- NPR Music Read less
