The American Choral Directors Association is proud to present Commissions, a recording of eleven commissioned works by notable American composers, made possible by the Brock Endowment. Since the beginning of the Brock Endowment, the ACDA has commissioned hundreds of new works through the Brock Series, the ACDA Student Composition Contest and for many other performance occasions. Featured composers such as Theron Kirk, Samuel Adler, Daniel Gawthrop, and Gwyneth Walker make this a can’t-miss release for lovers of choral music. Selections include “O For A Thousand Tongues,” “Sing A Mighty Song,” “The God Of Glory Thunders,” “Flanders Fields” and more. Ensembles from across the United States are featured on this compilation, including the Portland State University Choir, St. Charles Borromeo Choir, Ouachita Baptist University Choir, Children’s Chorus of Washington, and more.
