One Sheet: 

Robert Evett (1922-1975) was a highly esteemed American composer who was a major contributor to the cultural life of Washington, DC.

Evett composed in many genres, including orchestral and chamber music. His devout and personal choral pieces for the Catholic liturgy are undiscovered gems that deserve a wide hearing, not just on Sundays. The works on this disc, some a cappella, some with organ accompaniment, span music for Christmas and Lent, as well as the daily offices of Prime, Vespers and Compline. 

Masterfully sung by the 19 voices of Musikanten, the oldest choral chamber ensemble in the nation's capital, the music is given sublime interpretations in the warm environment of the Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, MD. Conductor and founder of the group, Kerry Krebill, directs the expressive and precise performances that led Musikanten's previous CD to be nominated Choral CD of the Year by Chorus! Magazine. 



"Evett was a 20th [century] American Composer that produced an impressive body of sacred choral. While he was productive in many differing genres, the excellent recording from the 19 voices of Musikanten celebrates his lesser-known contributions to the Catholic liturgy." - Tom Schulte

"Sugary little anthems and mass settings…technically superb…attacks and releases in absolute synch, and dead-on intonation." - Steven Schwartz
