New Recordings of Ives' Psalm 90
- Here's two new choral recordings. Both include Ives' Psalm 90. I haven't
heard either CD, so I can't offer any thoughts about the quality of the
performances. Anyone heard them?

I hope everyone's doing well. There's not been much activity on the list
Lately, I've been on a jazz bender. Lots of Charles Mingus and Bobby
Hutcherson. Not much Ives. But I ALWAYS come back to Ives after a while.

- Well, let's see... Roberto Gerhard's Violin Concerto, a real stunner.
Arnold Schoenberg's 2nd String Quartet. Oh yes, and Allan Pettersson's
8th Symphony (and *I* thought his 7th Symphony was heart-wrenching...)

a "proggy" mood lately. Not much Ives, either, but I am itching for some, so
it won't be long. In my Ives "discovery" (which started about two years
ago), I acquired about 25 Ives CD's and listened to Ives almost exclusively
for the better part of a year, so a change was due. But onto my listening of
late: the Strawbs, The Flower Kings, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, Tom Waits
(I need to pick up the new one), Balkan folk music, Dowland lute music,
Jethro Tull, The Bothy Band, Camel, etc.
BTW, it's great to see new recordings of Psalm 90. One of the true gems of
Ives' amazing output.
