Skylark is a premiere vocal ensemble of leading American vocal soloists, chamber musicians, and music educators. The latest album by this Boston-based group is a diverse and innovative program of music for Good Friday, pairing music from the United States with choral music from other parts of the world. This highly original album progresses through the scriptural Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, pairing the music of William Billings and the Sacred Harp with the music of contemporary composers Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Jaakko Mäntyjärvi.
