Slideshow-American Video 1140.jpgCommonwealth Chorale had prepared a November 2021 program with the lovely harmonies of composer Stephen Paulus and the stirring, uplifting choral works of Gwyneth Walker. With the pandemic continuing, the live performance was canceled, but we came together to record this beautiful music to offer our audience a video experience. Here we present the Paulus and Walker pieces, as well as a past recording by the Chorale of several songs from Randall Thompson’s beloved Frostiana.
