On June 1, 2021, Kerry Wilkerson with Virginia ACDA—the Virginia chapter of the American Choral Directors Association—spoke with composer Henry Dehlinger. In this insightful interview, Dehlinger discusses what inspires his choral works, large and small, and offers insight into his distinct compositional voice and aesthetic.
“A MASTER OF MYRIAD STYLES”
— Gramophone, February 2021
His compositions, Gramophone adds, "are diverse in atmosphere and harmonic language, and the writing is rich, often rapturous." Audiophile Audition calls his music "stunningly superb" and “formidably essential listening!”
“Each piece reveals the fastidious way Dehlinger shapes music to illuminate the meaning of the text”
— Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone
