Recorded in 1975, the University of Delaware Concert Choir, under the direction of Dr. Peter J. McCarthy, performs William Duckworth’s “A Mass for These Forgotten Times.” In a brief interview that follows this work, Duckworth describes his intention to seamlessly blend traditional chants with more modern extended vocal techniques, and his general satisfaction with the composition.
