Voices Within – Spiritual Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke

May 06, 2008 | MSR Classics | 59 minutes
"Visions Within" links the ancient past with the present to create a new spiritual sound. Robert Benford Lepley composed primitive-sounding chants woven into contemporary fugues and canons that circle around illusive poly-rhythms as well as other pieces with ancestral harmonies that evolve into lush tone clusters used in contemporary jazz. He uses Rilke s poems because their profound existential nature has the power to connect ancient symbols of the sacred; found deep within the human psyche with current forms of religious that explore the relationships between thought and emotion, life and death, fear and love, personal faith and social justice. Meryl Streep speaks the poems, while the music is performed by the remarkable New York Voices to bring Visions Within into being.
