Item #: CD-467
With a wide range of talents as composer, conductor, music editor, and organist, Richard Proulx has woven an impressive career, enriching the lives of people of many denominations with his liturgical music-making!
Rare Beasts and Unique Adventures, Volume I, a title borrowed from the first stanza of W. H. Auden's poem He Is the Way, celebrates Richard's incredible talent, featuring his choral music, written during the years 1968 through 1998. Highlighting thirty years of growth in his music, this recording presents the new Paschal Mass, five psalm settings (including one in a blues style), a litany from the Orthodox tradition, two liturgical chants with instruments, the title track, and much more.
The Cathedral Singers, under the direction of the composer, bring their glorious voices to this recording, with soloists, strings, and organ creating an unforgettable collection of Proulx's highly acclaimed choral works!
