Clerestory – Live CD

Clerestory is proud to release its self-titled, first CD recording, a compilation of the best of our live performances from our first two seasons beginning in 2006.

Discs are available for purchase by clicking at the left sidebar and at all our live performances. Price is $10 per disc. For an additional $5, we will ship up to three discs anywhere in the United States. For purchases of four discs or more, shipping to any one address is free.

We’re proud of the eco-design of our CD jacket, with thanks to our friends at Oasis Disc Manufacturing. This “green wallet” design features 100% certified green forestry practices paper board and a minimum of 10% post-consumer recycled content. All inks are vegetable based. Packaging is plastic-free and fully recyclable.

To save paper, weight, space, and costs, we have made all texts, translations, and notes on the music available online. Please click here for liner notes, texts, and translations. Enjoy!
