Marc Neikrug: Healing Ceremony

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Manheim
This work by composer Marc Neikrug was composed for the dedication of a cancer center in New Mexico, but the composer has since successfully presented it as a more general balm.

This work by composer Marc Neikrug was composed for the dedication of a cancer center in New Mexico, but the composer has since successfully presented it as a more general balm. The work's increasing renown is not hard to understand: Neikrug effectively combines a sort of moderate-Mahlerian language with New Age elements, setting chant-like texts, apparently written by the composer, that draw on Native American imagery "Thunder and lightning arrive from the South: Their power comes to join us here".
