Picture Book is a collection of vocal music that reimagines traditional Scots-Irish roots through works of contemporary American composer Malcolm Dalglish in collaboration with celebrated Australian choir director Mark O’Leary. Picture Book pulls us into the awe of the natural world with mythical creatures, birds, trees, and wild things. Expect settings of old time American fiddle tunes, Kentucky writer Wendell Berry’s nature poetry and heartfelt stories from life. Picture Book is a boldly optimistic feast of song with soaring melodies, transcendent harmonies, and imaginative vocalese.
