About this Recording

SMALDONE, E.: Rituals: Sacred and Profane (D. Phillips, Ritt, Talujon Percussion Quartet, New York New Music Ensemble, Florilegium Chamber Choir)

Ritual, craft and emotion are aspects of deep concern for composer Edward Smaldone (b. 1956). The contrasting array of colors and ensembles on this collection of works composed between 1984 and 2002 is unified by a musical voice that offers layers of meaning, careful technique and rich emotional reward. These works are calculated to ‘speak’ on first hearing, and speak more with each subsequent visit.
