MISERERE                                                                                   Released 2003 / LTM

Winston Tong - "Miserere" CDMISERERE ("Mercy") was composed in 1985 for a modern ballet of the same name staged by Belgian choreographer Pierre Droulers, based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The lyrics were written by Winston Tong, the music being a collaboration with celebrated Persian-born dancer and vocalist Sussan Deyhim. Remarkable in that it was recorded using voices alone, and employs no instruments at all. The effect is both eerie and seductive, and always hypnotic. Closer in tone to Tong's meditative cycle Like the Others (1982) than to his ''pop' album Theoretically Chinese (1985), Miserere is now revealed as a major work, which for many years was thought to have been lost. The booklet features Winston's poetic text for Miserere, and still shots from the performance.    [MP3]  [TRACKLIST]   [REVIEWS
