In my previous post, I may have made it sound like I knew all these musicians and composers so well. I don't. I'm a fan of Dawn Upshaw, and I know Osvaldo Golijov because Upshaw is his muse and I've got a few CDs of his music sung by her.
But I had never heard of the Crash Ensemble, Donnacha Dennehy, Iarla O'Lionaird or any of the others until I checked out the Crash Ensemble website, which is full of good information. It's amazing what you can learn from the web and regurgitate in five minutes!
