Shaw: and the swallow

Recorded October 2020 at Mountainview Cemetery

Caroline Shaw's breathtaking setting of Psalm 84 is at the same time contemplative and ecstatic. By using textless passages, Shaw mimics the flight of a bird searching for its home, while simultaneously commenting on the Syrian refugee crisis, which inspired her to write this piece in 2017.
