Jan Garbarek: Officium Novum by The Hilliard Ensemble

My friend Paul Swanson gave me a copy of the original "Officium" after its release years ago. It's unexpected and startling combination of Sax and Chant leave one speechless. I still find myself haunted by the beauty of this combination years later, now with this Novum edition, borrowing heavily from Armenian music.

Parce Mihi Domine


Andrew M. Greenwell


Thank-you for bringing this to my attention. This is beautiful, lovely, haunting.
