Album Notes

With Patricia Clark, soprano, Leslie Fyson, baritone, The Ambrosian Singers and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Hovhaness, conducting. Simple elegiac chant and solo song with and without text mixed with sudden random rushings of voices, harmonizations on non-European scales. A protest against war based on the Swiss "Chalabala" legend: "Dancing to the Stars Over Bridges of Thread," "I Am Dancing in Heaven," "No More Serve Your Brutal War Lords." ~ "Blue" Gene Tyranny
