The Choral Union – Richard Nance, Conductor


Conceived as a “town and gown” ensemble in 1984, and conducted by Dr. Richard Nance since 1993, the Choral Union consists of singers from across the Puget Sound community, including many PLU faculty, staff, students and alumni. This is the Choral Union’s first recording and features works by Carlyle Sharpe, John Chorbajian, Eric Whitacre, Simon Preston, Z Randall Stroop, Knut Nystedt’s, Benjamin Britten, David Mooney and Frank Ticheli’s. Also featured are Three American Folk Songs, arranged by conductor Richard Nance, along with his composition Batter My Heart, Three Personed God. Our album ends with the title work of this CD “I Thank You God” written by one of the country’s most esteemed women composers, Gwyneth Walker.
