Product details

This is the central issue of my music: its meditative and ecstatic quality. It is the result of uniting prayer with dance, sacred with secular, and the human with the Divine. - Christian Heim

A past pupil of Peter Sculthorpe and New York maestro Giampaolo Bracali, composer / music therapist Christian Heim believes that folk music, art music and chant can communicate the incomprehensible.

Recorded in the Concert Hall of the Faculty of Music, University of Newcastle, Heim's debut Move CD features Nicholas Routley directing the Sydney Chamber Choir and Sprung Percussion in premiere performances of the two sacred Prayer Dances, as well as A Pater Noster, the Lament, New Wine, Meditation, Love Song, Lullaby and the Benedicamus Domino.

Duration: 62 min.
