Philadelphia-based contemporary vocal ensemble The Crossing, under the direction of Donald Nally, releases “Rising with The Crossing,” an uplifting album that serves as an offering of hope amidst a pandemic as well as a journey through the ensemble’s projects over the last several years. The album includes music by Joby Talbot, Eriks Ešenvalds, Dieterich Buxtehude, Paul Fowler, Alex Berko, Ted Hearne, Santa Ratniece, and David Lang’s hauntingly topical “protect yourself from infection,” which sets texts from a 1918 U.S. government document, with the names of Philadelphians who fell victim to the 1918 influenza pandemic.
