All Things Common (2020)
Robert Istad conducts Pacific Chorale and Salastina in choral music by Tarik O’Regan. This recording traces Tarik’s distinctive development as a composer. We present never-recorded works from twenty years ago alongside new compositions written for this project. Tarik’s ingenuity speaks definitively throughout, and I believe our album serves as a testament to his exceptional voice.
The Radio Hour (2015)
A lonely woman named Nora turns on her radio one evening and discovers something magical in composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer’s whimsical choral opera, co-commissioned and premiered by Pacific Chorale. The recording also features acclaimed mezzo-soprano Susan Graham in Heggie’s settings of texts by Emily Dickinson and Amy Lowell.
