Notes & Reviews:

Composer Robert Lepley links the ancient past with the present in these works for voices. Chants are propelled into mesmerizing polyrhythmic orbit by contemporary fugues and canons and traditional chorales are transformed by tone clusters. Meryl Streep delivers a profound interpretation of Rainer Maria Rilke’s mystical poems. Her readings alternate with music set to these same texts.
