Echo Vocal Ensemble
Sarah Latto (director)

Echo Vocal Ensemble presents Innocence, a bold debut album that moves freely between musical traditions sacred and secular, composed and improvised, classical and popular.

 Spanning 900 years of musical history, this recording explores the concept of innocence and its many connections to our changing ideas of faith, tradition, childhood and the natural world.

Led by conductor Sarah Latto, Echo takes the listener on a journey through song, from Hildegard of Bingen and Maurice Ravel to ANOHNI, Morrissey, and Meredith Monk.
