Award-winning composer Christopher Tin's debut album Calling All Dawns brings together some of the finest performers from around the world in a musical journey through the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Over 200 musicians contribute, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, 4 choirs, a Maori mens chorus, as well as an international cast of featured soloists. The Soweto Gospel Choir performs a rendition of Tin's masterwork 'Baba Yetu', a song widely known as the theme to the video game Civilization IV. Mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade sings the lovely Polish 'Hymn Do Trojcy Swietej', medieval superstars Anonymous 4 perform the Irish 'Caoineadh', and Portuguese fado sensation Dulce Pontes performs 'Se E Pra Vir Que Venha.' Iranian vocalist Sussan Deyhim is featured on the lively 'Hamsafar', and Japanese pop star Lia, sharing the spotlight with Aoi Tada and Kaori Omura sings about the passing of the seasons in 'Mado Kara Mieru.'
