This piece of music was part of the ''Bach 2000'' project in which various composers attempted a reinvention of Bach's Passion. I was astounded by this composition. The recording is of a live performance which includes a brilliant Venezuelan Choral group and beautiful vocal solos on nearly every track. Do not miss this!
I just purchased this piece online, so I can't review the record itself. If it is only half as good as the performance I heard live, it will still be very worth the money. Golijov intertwined traditional Afro-Hispanic music, Classical, and Avante Garde to present this story in symphonic/ choral form. Very beautiful and moving, Definitely worth it!
