Notes & Reviews:

"...the praise in [Gubaidulina's] Alleluia hardly sounds as if it comes from the mouths of human beings with much to be thankful for. In fact, much of it is frankly nightmarish in its tonal onslaught...Thrumming string clusters and parlando effects from the choir suggest the music of Penderecki, and densely interweaving thickets of repeated melodic cells suggest Ligeti...This is one of the more compelling choral discs to come my way in some time." -Tuttle, Fanfare
