As Kent Tritle and The Choral Mix go on a summer hiatus, we bring you Together in Song from WGBH in Boston.
From Charles Ives' adventurous hymnody in the early 1900s, to Morten Lauridsen's hypnotic sounds in the late 1990s, this week's program features the works that defined the 20th century in American choral music.
Host Anthony Trecek-King explores the works of the mavericks, the mystics, the melodists and rule-breakers in the American Century of choral music, including such notable works as "The Hour Glass" by Irving Fine, Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein, "Knee Play No. 1" from Einstein on the Beach by Philip Glass and David Del Tredici's "Acrostic Song" from Final Alice.
