Jennifer Hidon is the winner of the Pulitzer prize and her works have been played by the leading American orchestras. She writes about Blue Cathedral: “I wanted to create the sensation of contemplation and quiet peace at the beginning, moving towards the feeling of celebration and ecstatic expansion of the soul, all the while singing along with that heavenly music. The recent loss of my younger brother made me reflect on the amazing journeys that we all make in our lives, crossing paths with so many individuals singularly and collectively, learning and growing each step of the way.”

Recorded for GSOplay 4 May 2018
