Our "New Voices, New Recordings" month continues this week on Choral Showcase with two works from the Americas. Bob Chilcott's Circlesong is a musical portrayal of the cycle of life, drawn from indigenous poems from North America. And from Central America, Frank La Rocca's Mass of the Americas mixes the traditional Latin mass with Nahuatl folk melodies and prayer from 18th century Mexico.
