Adams: The Gospel According To The Other Mary

Play on Napster
Released:
Label: Dg
Just one of the world's top conductors leading a great American orchestra through one of the most ambitious works in the career of composer John Adams. This modern-day setting of the Christ story has a contemporary, liberal-humanist bent (it opens in the L.A. County jail, with a drug search), but Adams' music gives the narrative all the gravity of traditional oratorios. Immersion in the whole work is recommended, but if you need a taste, try "For the Grave Cannot Praise Thee" (sung by a risen Lazarus), and the choral item "Who Rips His Flesh Down the Seams."
