Inspiring and bold...
Fanshawe (who attempts to be physically present at any performance) has managed to cleverly combine styles in this inspiring work. The blend of traditional African chant with chorals, operatic soprano and electric instruments leave the listener wondering how it is all possible, but still manage to impress without fail. The blending of cultures and styles brings new meaning to the age old text, where modern audiences can make of it their own. There are moments of the work that are truely beautiful. The simplicity of the Lords Prayer as a round is a sweet melody to the ears. The soprano is dramatic and bold and brings a completely different dynamic to the music. Contrastingly pleasant and discordant, it is hard to imagine without actually hearing it, but somehow Fanshawe pulls it off.
