I invite you to begin your New Year in thoughtful contemplation. May you find inspiration in this excerpt of Cantus's gorgeous Lowlands, from the album There Lies the Home, released by Cantus Recordings on January 1, 2006. The album is a collection of music about the sea.
My thanks to Onbeing. This piece was included in the December 8, 2016, Onbeing podcast with choral music composer, conductor, and teacher Alice Parker. Parker currently is artistic director of the nonprofit Melodious Accord, which she founded in 1985. The version sung here was arranged by Parker and Robert Shaw.
Cantus is a male vocal ensemble.
