Psallite is a unique and inspirational kaleidoscope of sacred choral works, which bridges several centuries and allows the listener to experience the continuity of praise across generations. Renaissance masters such as Palestrina are featured on this disc, as well as contemporary composers such as Esenvalds and Bryars. Beautifully arranged African-American spirituals are also included. Cor Cantiamo performs the works on this disc. Conducted by Eric A. Johnson, the ensemble is currently the Choir in Residence at Northern Illinois University.
