ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Exhilarating," that's how one member of Chor Anno sums it up! "Singing with choral professionals at such a high level is a rich experience." Chor Anno doesn't sing often...just one concert program a year...but this group sings well. Howard Meharg, who founded the group in 2009, also passes the conducting baton to colleagues in the group. "With such talented artists, why not?," he asks. In this album, he shares conducting with Margaret Green (Benedizione), Reg Unterseher (A City Called Heaven and Tyger, Tyger), and Paul Klemme (Tu es petrus and Who Is This?).

On this album you'll hear:
Saints Bound for Heaven, an American folk hymn arranged by Mack Wilberg. The arrangement uses four-hand piano with Sharon Bolster and Ann Long.

Shenandoah, a standard of choral literature, but in a brand-new way, arranged by our friend and colleague, Richard Nance, director of the Choir of the West at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma. Violin by Matt Mandrones.

Benedizione is a beautifully written original compostion for women's voices by Portland's Joan Szymko. The translation from Italian is: The blessing of St. Francis of Assisi to Brother Leo, The Lord Bless you and keep you. May he show His face to you and have mercy on you. May he turn his gaze to you and give you peace. The Lord Bless You. Former member of Chor Anno, Margaret Green of Vancouver, Washington, conducted this one.

A City Called Heaven, arranged by Josephine Poelinitz, features Reg Unterseher, baritone as soloist and James Regin in the gospel style piano accompaniment.

Come Dwell in Solomon's Walls is by Z. Randall Stroope, one of America's most performed composers. This is a triumphant anthem we love to sing.

Tell My Father comes from the musical "The Civil War." It's a poignant, moving song with words spoken by a dying Union soldier. Reg Unterseher is our baritone soloist. Stephen Meharg plays the viola.

My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord, arranged as only the late, great Moses Hogan could have done it. A spiritual that just rocks.

Tyger, Tyger is a composition by Reginald Unterseher, singer, conductor, composer...and, of course, a member of Chor Anno. It's a setting of the famous William Blake poem.

We Rise Again features the solo voice of Chor Anno's Jonathan Vaughn. This powerful and uplifting song is arranged by a friend and colleague from Vancouver, BC, Stephen Smith.

Tu Es Petrus (Thou art Peter) was composed by Robert Pearsall in the late 19th century. It's a gem of choral writing full of rich harmonies with resolving suspensions. A masterwork for sure.

Who Is This? we couldn't resist adding to the album. While it's in the anthem category, it is so moving and beautiful we had to add it. Dr. Paul Klemme, our colleague from the Salem area, prepared and conducted this piece. Dr. Steve Meharg plays the viola.
