Christopher Tin

Christopher Tin is an American composer, best known for his large-scale song cycles that combine multiple world-music vocal traditions in a symphonic context.  His best known song is the choral mega-hit ‘Baba Yetu’, a Swahili setting of The Lord’s Prayer popularized by the video game ‘Civilization IV’, which won a Grammy in 2011 for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists.  He won a second Grammy that same year for his recording debut ‘Calling All Dawns’, for Best Classical Crossover Album.
