As a virtual conductor compiling this performance in a unique way, Artistic Director Brian Stone directed a live performance of the instrumental musicians (the Altius Quartet, pianist Stella Pradeau and guitarist Gabriel Santiago), and then combined a recording of the instrumentalists with individual tracks from over forty singers performing their vocal parts recorded at home. He explains that his job:
…was to knit it all together and that was a huge learning curve. Of all the virtual performances I have produced, I am the proudest of this one. It has so many layers of complexity…The instrumentalists together without the vocal pieces feel incomplete, almost hollow at times. The process is a struggle, it’s lonely and it’s hard, but I think the thing that makes it easier is that all the singers are there with me. Adding everyone’s voice individually is like having the choir together with me.
