Adolphus Hailstork (Composer) and McCullough Chorale (Performer)
All of the works on this disc of choral music are world premiere recordings. As Dr. Hailstork says in the notes for this album, he has always enjoyed singing, right from the beginning when he was a boy soprano in the choir of the Cathedral of All Saints in Albany, New York. Here he was exposed to a wide range of choral music. When he went to Howard University from 1959-1963, he also sang in the choir. The choir often appeared with the National Symphony Orchestra singing the great works from the choral-orchestral repertoire. [From the publisher]
