Sounds Choral: Nov. 18 - Beethoven's Missa Solemnis Through the Eyes of Robert Shaw

Host Gabriel Crouch, director of choral activities at Princeton University, explores Robert Shaw's recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, including material and commentary from Shaw's notes and letters. Sounds Choral can be heard Sunday (11/18) at 2 pm.

Gabriel Crouch is Director of Choral Activities and Senior Lecturer in Music at Princeton University. He began his musical career as an eight-year-old in the choir of Westminster Abbey, where he performed a solo at the wedding of HRH Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson. After completing a choral scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge, he was offered a place in the renowned a cappella group The King's Singers in 1996. In the next eight years he made a dozen recordings on the BMG label (including a grammy nomination), and gave more than 900 performances in almost every major concert venue in the world.
