Review of Gregory Spears’ Requiem

November 17, 2011

Back in August, 2010, I was at New York’s Corpus Christi Church, a part of the ensemble recording Gregory Spears’ Requiem.  It has just been released to wonderful reviews.  The Lucid Culture Blog had the following to say: 

 “The opening prelude sets the tone for the rest of the work. The sonics are marvelously suited to the music: the natural reverb on the two harps gives them the incisive presence of a piano, but muted just enough to enhance the murky ambience. The voices enter in counterpoint, with an unexpectedly agitated, clustering, seemingly argumentative crescendo, the last thing one would expect to hear in a “Requiem Aeternam:” it’s jarring, to say the least, and it packs a wallop.”  You can read the rest of the article, here.

Requiem is now out on New Amsterdam Records.
