CHORAL MASTERPIECES

 

Highlights from the 38th Annual Season (1993-94), all tracks recorded in live performance in five St. Louis churches. The recording charts the progress and development of the Chorus during one season, the first track being the first piece sung, and the final track similarly the last piece sung.
