Description:

Featuring the voices of Anam Cara with James Jordan conducting



With this recording, Gerald Custer firmly establishes himself as a
major talent in choral composition. Gloriously performed by the voices of
Anam Cara, conducted by James Jordan, this CD is simply breathtaking.



As beautiful as this music is, most is readily accessible to high school and college
choirs, and is published as part of GIA’s Evoking Sound Choral Series. This project is a
culmination of a remarkable friendship and true synergy between Custer and Anam
Cara.



Writes Jordan: “I hope this recording will serve to introduce you to this honest,
fresh, and gifted compositional voice. Gerald Custer is an amazing combination of
composer, poet, and scholar, which produces choral music of not only great beauty
but also profound message…As choral musicians, we all know that great choral music
takes us on such profound inner journeys.”



This recording certainly achieves its ambitious goals.



Gerald Custer is an award-winning composer known for his deeply lyrical and
melodic choral compositions. He is presently Director of Music at the First
Presbyterian Church of Farmington in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
