NEW YORK (AP) — Julia Wolfe's "Anthracite Fields" has won the Pulitzer Prize for music.

Judges described Wolfe's work as a "powerful oratorio for chorus and sextet evoking Pennsylvania coal-mining life around the turn of the 20th Century."

The other finalists in the category were Lei Liang for "Xiaoxiang" and John Zorn for "The Aristos."
