Over eleven tracks, contemporary choral ensembles Voces8 and Tenebrae perform works by Gjeilo with accompaniment from the Chamber Orchestra of London. The lush and down-tempo works are by turns ethereal and meditative. We'll feature tracks from the Decca release during this week's Contemplative Point Thursday at noon and on this Friday's Morning Classics between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. on Classical 90.5FM.
