Kairos: A Consort of Singers announces the release of a new CD recording, “The Valley Sings: Choral Music by Composers of the Hudson Valley”, on the MSR Classics label. Kairos is directed by Professor Edward Lundergan (Music), artist-in-residence at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park. The CD features choral works, most never previously recorded, by composers who have lived and worked in the Hudson Valley region, including Aaron Copland, Peter Schickele and George Tsontakis. Former music faculty member John B Hedges is represented by Exeter Riddles, a setting of texts in Old English from the 10th-century Exeter Book. Also included is “Purpose of a Cat,” a setting by Shirley Hoffman Warren ’04 (Music) of a poem by Professor David Appelbaum (Philosophy). More information is available at www.kairosconsort.org.
