DCD 019 - Philippine Treasures

VGo Records released "Philippine Treasures" by guitarist Angelo Favis a number of years ago. They've finally released a second volume in the series, and this program we showcase selections from both discs.

We also continue our look at the New York Latvian Concert Choir's catalog. This time we present two movements from "The Sea," a monumental work for chorus and orchestra by Latvian composer Alfreds Kalnins. Kalnins was perhaps Latvia’s most prolific composer, with over 500 works to his credit.

We're also working on an enhanced version of the podcast for iTunes subscribers. Look for the launch of that feed shortly!

Thanks to the listeners who've voted for us at -- and the other podcasting sites as well. Our numbers show that folks throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia are listening. Your vote lets us know the program's appreciated. And we appreciate the support.
