He is the author of the bestsellers In Defense of Food: An Eaters Manifesto and The Omnivores Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, which was named one of the ten best books of 2006 by the New York Times and the Washington Post and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

We sing to lift people up, to inspire them and touch them with our music in ways that genres apart from Gospel cant. We are open to all audiences and hope to encourage people to allow music to become a healing and divine part of their lives. We believe that our voices are meant to serve the purpose of spreading a ministry of love and by singing, we are allowed to minister vocally. Singing gives us hope and strength and we hope that our audiences can experience these same feats through listening.

The Dutch-based vocal ensembleCappella Pratensis literally Cappella des prs champions the music of Josquin Desprez and the polyphonists of the 15th and 16th centuries. The group combines historically informed performance practice with inventive programs and original interpretations based on scholarly research and artistic insight. As in Josquins time, the members of Cappella Pratensis perform from a central music stand, singing from the original mensural notation scored in a large choirbook. This approach, together with attention to the linguistic origin of the compositions and the modal system on which it is based, offers a unique perspective on the repertoire. Founded in 1987, Cappella Pratensis is currently under the artistic direction of singer and conductor Stratton Bull.
