Paraclete Recordings announces the release of For the Beauty of the Earth: Celebrating Creation in Brass, Organ, and Percussion - a collection of contemporary works honoring Creation. From David Marlatt's evocative Windscape and Earthscape to the brilliant and stirring hymn arrangements of James Curnow; from the echoes of space in Anthony Dilorenzo's Luminosity to Charles Widor's renowned Toccata arranged for brass and organ; and the beauty of Brenton Broadstock's Benediction, each piece on this CD inspires an appreciation for the awe-filled universe we live in. The generous range of sound and colors produced by the 15-member Gabriel V Brass Ensemble and organist SharonRose Pfeiffer, creates a musical glimpse into the majesty of creation that surrounds us every day.
