A week later, I remain saddened by the passing of Stephen Paulus, one of the most beautiful voices of American classical music. Stephen succumbed to complications from a stroke last summer on October 19, 2014. I hoped to generate some recovery energy with our new recording, but I am glad that we were able to capture a beautiful part of the spirit he shared with us. With it, we honor the memory of a gifted composer who was gentle, kind, witty and generous of spirit for all who express themselves through music. Rest in peace.

Please read a wonderful obituary in the New York Times - http://nyti.ms/1FzufTb
Listen to his beautiful Elegy which speaks volumes today.
