Steven Warner and Chrysogonus Waddell first collaborated when the Notre Dame Folk Choir traveled to the Cistercian Abbey in Kentucky for a retreat. Waddell showed Warner some choral pieces he had written, but, living in an all-male community, had never heard in SATB form. Imagine their mutual elation when the Folk Choir sang the pieces as they were intended! Since then, the relationship between Waddell and Warner and the Folk Choir has grown into a cherished friendship. Here their works are presented by the WLP singers.
