This music has little to do with Jazz, but in its own right it presents an interesting array of vocals, both solo and choral, sung with integrity and passion.
It might well be classed as Modern Gregorian Chant, such is the impressive range of vocalizing.
This recording really deserves to be heard widely, but don't expect it to swing - or does it?
