Abstract:

This CD presents the vocal music of three distinctive Islamic religions: the Druse, the Matawila Shiites and the Hanafi Sunnites of Lebanon. Several of the pieces are described as "intimate conversations with God," and Western listeners may find a common point of reference in the Gregorian chant. The absolute vocal mastery displayed in these changes, hymns and prayers demands a synergy of religious knowledge, ritual, word and melody, enhanced with individual improvisation and embelishments.
