View Best of the Sacred Concerts, Vol. II

"[Alsop] opened the orchestra's 13th season with a concert devoted fully to selections from Duke Ellington's three Sacred Concerts collections...[These] 16 selections showed the variety of styles Ellington yoked together in a celebration of faith that allows entertainment and devotion to mingle freely. Classic 1940s dance band moves sit comfortably beside introspective blues and full-throttle gospel. Instrumental and vocal virtuosity share the spotlight with supple, graceful choral and ensemble writing."
Allan Kozinn, The New York Times,19/10/1996
