Naxos / Wind Band Classics: 8.573143-44

Johan de Meij's First Symphony, The Lord of the Rings is a spectacular evocation in five portraits based on J.R.R. Tolien's tales. The Second Symphony is an ode to New York City's symmetrical streets and soaring architecture. The Third Symphony is a cinematic portrayal of the earth in all its majestic beauty. These arrangements showcase the wind band to great effect.

harmonia mundi: HMU907557

Francesco da Milano was a celebrated composer of lute music in Renaissance Italy. In this generous selection of his favorite works by the master, Paul O'Dette has grouped these elegant and refined compositions into proto suites, each consisting of a ricercar, a fantasia, and one or more intabulations of vocal "hits" of the day.
   
Choral Concert: Compline Choir - Proulx, R. / Hallock, P. (I Will Meditate) Choral Concert: Compline Choir - Proulx, R. / Hallock, P. (I Will Meditate)
Gothic: G-49284

The Compline Choir at Saint Mark's Catherdral in Seattle has received worldwide notoriety for the re-popularization of the late-night monastic service of Compline. The service mixes chant with polyphonic hymns and in this case, original settings of the psalms by Peter Hallock. Most of the music on this release has not been previously recorded.
   
Carl, R.: Shake the Tree / Braided Bagatelles / Piano Sonata No. 2, 'The Big Room' (Berman, Eggert, Eryilmaz, McDonald) Carl, R.: Shake the Tree / Braided Bagatelles / Piano Sonata No. 2, "The Big Room" (Berman, Eggert, Eryilmaz, McDonald)
Innova: INNOVA857

Robert Carl's newest release Shake the Tree is testament to a compositional range called 'the widest of his generation' by critic Kyle Gann. This set of piano works provides a playground where the composer can try out his most radical, whimsical and grand ideas.
