Zorn, John: Madrigals (For Six Female Voices) (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Zorn's compositions for acappella voice are some of his most sensual and sublime creations. This CD presents his two books of "Madrigals" scored for six female voices. Beautifully performed by his long time ensemble the "Sapphites" the music is even more varied and challenging than his previous masterpieces "The Holy Visions" and "Shir Hashirim," touching upon minimalism, tonal and atonal counterpoint, textural experiments and more. Inspired by the visionary poetry of 19th century British Romantic Percy Bysshe Shelley, a charming lyricism and subtle spirituality rides through the music from first note to last."-Tzadik
