After 2000's "best of" compilation "Eternity's Sunrise", Bill Douglas is back with this contemporary choral/instrumental gem. Once again the Ars Nova Singers deliver touching and inspiring harmonies, supported by Bill's sensitive piano playing and brilliant melodic arrangements for oboe, bassoon, clarinet and flute. In a career marked by extraordinarily beautiful and popular music, "A Place Called Morning" may be his most appealing work yet. In addition to new settings of poetry, such as "A Place Called Morning" (poetry by Emily Dickinson) and "Rise Up, My Love" (from The Song of Solomon), this collection also includes choral arrangements of two previously released Douglas pieces, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" (poetry by W.B. Yeats) and "Tara".

Included as well are sensitive instrumental compositions such as Forest Hymn and Sadness of the Moon, both of which showcase Douglas' unique ability to evoke the most tender and poignant qualities of the human experience. All in all, this 13-song collection delivers some of the richest, most expressive music being written today.
