Prayer for Peace
Prayer for Peace (ABC Classics 465 824-2)
SKU: 01990
AU $23.93

Label: ABC Classics Cat. No.: 465 824-2 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

The works on this disc share a common quality, a move away from the stresses of today's constantly accelerating pace of living, a focus on the present rather than the future. Listening to them, we discover a wealth of emotion and, most poignantly, a profound joy.

All works use the unaccompanied human voice, the first and most personal instrument ever played.

The composers have translated into music their ecstasy and their grief, their anger and pain, their tenderness, delight and joy, their thankfulness and their awe: a sacred meditation rich in spiritual and earthy experiences.
