A follow-up to the best-selling "Beyond Chant," this program of visionary music takes the listener on an other-worldly journey from Chant to Renaissance.
Beginning with a mesmerizing solo soprano chant of Hildegard von Bingen, this new program weaves both solo and group chants through medieval and Renaissance masterpieces. The flow back and forth enables the listener to feel the spellbinding continuity in all of this music, which has its strong roots in Chant.
Dennis Keene and the Voices of Ascension were one of last year’s success stories with their release of "Beyond Chant." Not only did the album make headlines, it was included in a number of best sellers lists including Billboard’s classical chart. (Debuting at #10)
"Sheer musical excellence... Mr. Keene drew an intensity from his singers that effectively tapped into both the meditative and ecstatic currents of the music." -
