Turn the World Around

Music by Harry Belafonte

Originally Performed by Harry Belafonte

Turn the World Around is an album by Harry Belafonte, released in 1977. After 21 years on the RCA Victor label, Belafonte signed with Columbia Records. After a series of pop-oriented albums, Turn the World Around was a return to interpreting folk songs of other cultures. Gary Ginell stated in his AllMusic review: "It is an absolute triumph and one of the finest albums of his career." Although recorded in the US, it was only released overseas.

The Choral Project : One is the All : 00  1 CD : Daniel Hughes : 922

The Choral Project : One is the All

Founded by Daniel Hughes in 1996, the 46-strong, mixed-voice Choral Project has gained an excellent reputation for performing high-level choral literature in concerts, interfaith services and choral festivals and invitationals in Northern California and across the country. This is the San Jose, CA-based ensemble's 5th CD, including the critically acclaimed "Water and Light," featuring the music of Eric Whitacre. 17 songs, beginning with Stephen Swartz' soaring "Keramos" and the Ward Swingle-arranged "De Puta y Taco," "One is the All" impressively progresses through a varied and eclectic songlist. Roberto Valera's joyous "Quisiera," the brooding, dissonant "War Song," the lovely "So we'll go no more a roving," Charles Stanford's soaring "The Bluebird," Harry Belafonte's dynamic "Turn the World Around," Joan Szymcko's "It Takes A Village," Jaako Mantyjarvi's spirited "El Hambo," and Joshua Shank's dramatic "Musica animam tangens" are favorites. The poise and vocal maturity of the ensemble, a beautifully arranged and selected songlist and strong direction by Hughes add up to another very special CD from the Choral Project!

Qu'il La Fait Bon Regarder! , Quisiera , War Song , So We'll Go No More A-roving , Come To Me My Love, The Bluebird , Fair & True , Turn The World Around, It Takes A Village , The Garten Mother's Lullaby , El Hambo , Famine Song , Let Evening Come , Musica Animam Tangens , Ubi Caritas
