Kile Smith: Vespers
Audio CD; Enhanced
Navona 5809

Kile Smith is the curator of the renowned Fleisher Collection of music in Philadelphia, and a composer of stealthy excellence. His Vespers is an ethereally beautiful setting of liturgical text that deftly blends modernity and ancient forms. Commissioned by a period-instrument ensemble, it is enchantingly played by their collection of sackbuts, shawms, lutes, and other antique instruments.… a singular voice.
