Stunning and timeless contemporary classical soundtrack action with revered vocalist Meredith Monk's Book Of Days LP on ECM. Composed to accompany an avant-garde screenplay of the same name which is quaintly described as 'a rich and haunting reinvention of medieval life that never loses its contemporary perspective', and the accompanying soundtrack here fully reinforces this with Monk's staggering vocal technique is always at the forefront. The pieces range from fully exposed solo vocal meditations to more grandiose group performances with baffling and arrestingly beautiful vocal interplay with this rich, medieval feel. The perfect showcase for the intrinsic magic of the human voice. (Vinyl & Sleeve VG+++).
