    Night Draws Near
    A new CD of choral music by the group CLERESTORY - Chris Fritzsche, Jesse Antin, John Bischoff, Dan Cromeenes, Clifton Massey, Justin Montigne, Tom Hart, Jim Monios, and Kevin Baum. This exploration of the mysteries of life and death features music inspired by the traditions of Halloween, All Soul’s Day, and El Día de los Muertos.

    Our CD was recorded in the dark of night in late July, and gave rise to a new level of singing together. Highlights include two Shakespearean settings (Double, Double, Toil and Trouble by the eclectic Finnish composer Jaako Mäntyjärvi and Full Fathom Five by Ralph Vaughan Williams), John Tavener’s Funeral Ikos, four settings of Lorca poetry, and music from the Renaissance, Mexican, and shape-note traditions.

    CSLSR Music Director Chris Fritzsche is a member of Clerestory and sings a solo in Song No. 8 on this album - Lorca Suite: La Luna Asoma
