During the 2014-2015 season, Cascadian Chorale reaches an historic milestone rare among Seattle-area choirs: our fiftieth anniversary! In commemoration of this jubilee, we have released a studio recording, titled "Welcome Home." What a fitting way to memorialize fifty years of beautiful music! Many thanks to all who supported this project.
This recording highlights some of our singers' favorite pieces from the past few years, with an emphasis on American music. We are especially excited to include five works by local composers, including two of our own singers, Jeremy Kings and Chris Fraley. Bern Herbolsheimer, Giselle Wyers, and Fraley have all served as our Composer-in-Residence in recent years. Eric Barnes's humorous Lambscapes is perhaps our most-requested work since we sang it five years ago. The centerpiece of the recording is Randall Thompson's classic Frostiana, in its original version with piano, of which there is no recording currently available. Three works by the eighteenth-century composer William Billings round out this retrospective of great American music.
