Amazon and iTunes have set October 2nd as the release date for Bruce Broughton’s “In the World of Spirits” on a new CD, also entitled “In the World of Spirits,” recorded by the Emory Symphonic Winds, conducted by Dr. Scott A. Stewart. The CD features additional works for winds by Jennifer Higdon, Gustav Holst, Leroy Anderson and others. Planned originally as a Christmas album, the CD includes Holiday favorites such as “Greensleeves, Sleigh Ride” and a “Symphonic Prelude on Adeste Fideles.”
“In the World of Spirits,” commissioned by the Emory Symphonic Winds, was inspired by, but does not directly reference, the energy, power and terror that inhabited the native American magical world of spirit.
Hard copies will be available starting October 26th.
