Esperanza, the new CD of choral and vocal works by Ted Vives is now available. Esperanza is the debut CD of composer Ted Vives. Esperanza is a compilation of choral and vocal works all related to the theme of Hope (in Italian, "Esperanza".) Each work on this album speaks to the spirit -- that place which we all go to find strength and perhaps courage to overcome the trials that accompany mere existence. The ways in which we all derive strength and courage and what we call "hope" are summed up in the works on this CD. A unique sonic/acoustic experience featuring choir and solo voice both a capella and with instrumental accompaniment.
