Throughout #VoicesofSpring, each weekday at 11 a.m., we've been featuring a recording of a performance led by the great Robert Shaw. As we prepare today's piece, J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor, enjoy reading this piece that explores just why Robert Shaw was so important to choral music in America.
For nearly half of his 82 years on this earth, Robert Shaw was arguably the most significant figure in American choral music. 'He changed choral music in the United States of America,' says Ann Howard Jones, director emeritus of choral activities at Boston University. Shaw was born 100 years ago this week.
