"This is a beautiful recording. Musica Sacra sing with a dreamy otherworldly quality exqusite works by all these composers...including an incredible interpretation of Messiaen's towering "O Sacrum Convivium"...but wonderfully matched by the lovely new works by Meredith Monk, Robert Moran, Kim Sherman, and the heartbreaking requiem by Ricky Ian Gordon, "Water Music/A Two Part Requiem." Even Ligeti is represented with his groundbreaking "Lux Aeterna." This CD belongs in your library alongside all of your Arvo Part and Taverner recordings. Sadly, Catalyst was a BMG label that didn't last very long, but they put out a wonderful series of recordings of which this was a jewel."
