Inspired by the historic pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Path of Miracles by Joby Talbot is a haunting choral masterpiece, rich and raw in reflection of all life’s journeys. As Jill Kimball of the Second Inversion project writes, “You don’t have to be religious, or even spiritual, to find adventure in Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles. The seventeen-part harmony, set to text that’s in turns religious, historical, and poetic, is indescribably beautiful. Talbot’s piece is the choral interpretation of a month-long journey filled with excitement, doubt, revelation, fear, and triumph.”

Sanctuary Road by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec is the second of his “American historical oratorios” drawing on the astonishing stories found in William Still’s book The Underground Railroad. Regarded as the Father of the Underground Railroad, Still‘s meticulous documentation of the heroic and courageous stories of enslaved African Americans escaping to freedom is transformed into a “modern choral masterpiece, representing struggle and hope in the best of the oratorio tradition” (Black Grooves).
