»The peaceful land in which the pilgrim awaits the call to the Celestial City"... The pious hymns of the New World are difficult to resist, at least for Charles Ives, whose first string quartet is interwoven with the gospel song »Sweet Beulah Land«. Mark O‘Connor provides a contrast in the form of earthy Country and Appalachian Bluegrass. A programme that has been maturing for years, in which Ensemble violist Justin Caulley returns to the charred whisky barrels of his Puritan homeland. »Heaven, hell and a bourbon at the dancehall, that’s my America.«

Oh sweet, holy sin.
