Notes & Reviews:

"Christopher Theofanidis got his inspiration for 'Rainbow Body' from a chant by Hildegard von Bingen, a style he extends by having an instrument that plays one note of a phrase hold that note, while the next instrument on the next note does the same, etc., as if a pianist were holding down the pedal, making a phrase sound slurred. ...The repertoire is excellent - the Higdon is a truly lovely work." - French, ARG
