The similar effects achieved by certain baroque practices and modern minimalism have long been noted -- so why shouldn't a post-minimalist like Mazzoli write her own music for a vespers ceremony? The concept works from the first track, in which a suitably pensive opening gives way to wordless vocal fillips and some backbeat-ish percussion, courtesy of Wilco's Glenn Kotche (who is himself a rising new-classical star). The composer's graceful writing for the strings and keyboards of her own Victoire ensemble mixes well with Deidre Muro's solemn and ethereal vocals, throughout the album.
