Recent published recordings include We Are (Albany Records 2020), a recording that brings messages of social conscience, equality, peace, and freedom to the forefront, and Old and New Worlds (Centaur Records 2020), the result on an international collaboration between Ars Veritas (Sweden) and Schola Cantorum (Miami Men’s Glee Club) focusing on repertoire with origins in Gregorian chant.
