On February 20, 1990, one of the three major US TV networks had a report on the growing popularity of "world music" in the US, and specifically Bulgarian choral music. The report features a short interview of British singer Kate Bush and a bit from the program "Rhythms of the World" about the Trio Bulgarka.
As usual, please do not mention the name of the program, the host or the network. That's how cool clips get found and deleted and how accounts get banned.
Choral superstar Eric Whitacre conducted the VocalEssence Chorus & Ensemble Singers, The St. Olaf Choir, and the 160-voice Minnesota High School Honors Choir in a performance of "Cloudburst"--part of the sold-out VocalEssence "Eric Whitacre Extravaganza" on March 22, 2009 at Orchestra Hall, Minneapolis.
I still remember getting to hear this fantastic choir at the Marktoberdorf Choral Competition. My jaw quite literally dropped listening to the amazing sound that was emanating from the Modeon stage. This is from their Lauridsen album. Just wait for that Low D. That's when you're supposed to close your eyes. Enjoy.
