Bookmark and Share

The second album from two-time GrammyTM Award-winning composer Christopher Tin, entitled The Drop that Contained the Sea, has entered the Billboard Classical Traditional Charts at #1 after its first week of release.  The ten-part song-cycle explores the theme of water in its different forms, with vocal performances by fellow GrammyTM Award-winners the Soweto Gospel Choir and Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares, as well as early music superstars Anonymous 4, Mongolian pop starNominjin, world-renowned fadista Dulce Pontes, GrammyTM-nominated choir Schola Cantorum and more.

The recording follows Tin's debut album Calling All Dawns, which won the GrammyTM for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2011 and contained the hugely popular song "Baba Yetu," which was the theme song for video game Civilization IV and won a GrammyTM for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists (the first piece of video game music to win a GrammyTM).
