The Crossing
Amazon | iTunes | ClassicsOnline | Naxos Music Library

IT IS TIME features the compositions of David Shapiro, Kile Smith, Paul Fowler, Frank Havroy, Erhard Karkoschka and Kristen Broberg based on the German-language poetry of Romanian poet Paul Celan. Celan's words are largely open to interpretation and lend themselves to musical adaptations; the composers on this disc adapt the words well, and vocal ensemble The Crossing, under conductor Donald Nally, performs them beautifully. Join the choir and the composers as they lead us through music that guides us through dreamlike imagery ranging from leafy streams to overcrowded cities to windswept mountains.
