Notes & Reviews:

Voices for Organ & Didgeridoo was commissioned by the City of Melbourne to relaunch the Melbourne Town Organ in 2001. This piece was the first collaboration between Glass and didgeridoo player Mark Atkins. The two would later work together on Orion. This world premiere recording is performed and produced by Michael Riesman, organist and music director of the Philip Glass Ensemble. The second half of the album is dedicated to a new published edition of Glass works arranged for organ by Riesman including pieces from Powaqqatsi, Glassworks, and Naqoyqatsi. Riesman performs on a privately owned instrument in New York State.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Voices is another one of Glass's works designed to allow for the collision and productive collaboration between two cultures. The Organ Suite is described as an arrangement (by Riesman) of four movements from various unidentified works.
