Conductor David Hill talks with composers Roderick Williams and Reena Esmail about their commissioned works for Yale Schola Cantorum, released on the Hyperion label. We will hear two complete movements from that recording whose themes of equity, unity, and peace speak to the urgent issues of our time.
