On New Classical Tracks, we love sharing with you the most exciting new recordings every year. And, when you enter our weekly CD giveaways, you show us how excited you are about these recordings, too. Find out which albums made the list of 10 most coveted new releases of 2020.

Topping the chart for this year is Eric Whitacre and Charles Anthony Silvestri's The Sacred Veil, featuring the Los Angeles Master Chorale and artistic director Grant Gershon. The collaboration was borne from grief that turned into something beautiful, with The Sacred Veil outlining the thin wall between our world and the rest of eternity. This release delves deep into emotions surrounding loss, and emerges with the hope and solace that comes when pain is released and love is left behind.
