Product details

This is Michael Kieran Harvey's epic Catalogue des Errantes Bibliques for eight keyboardists and four percussionists, together with spoken narration written and spoken by Arjun von Caemmerer. There are 25 musical passages interspersed with 25 short narratives.

Using the songs of birds from all over France, the composer Olivier Messiaen compiled his 'Catalogue d'oiseaux' ("Catalogue of birds"), a vast compendium of music in seven books. Michael Kieran Harvey, who has recorded Messiaen's complete work (MD 3299), has composed Catalogue des Errances Bibliques ("Catalogue of Biblical Errancy"), which comprises twenty-five pieces with inspiration drawn from the 850 pages of C. Dennis McKinsey's monumental 'Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy'. Interspersed with readings by poet Arjun von Caemmerer, Catalogue des Errances Bibliques is scored for a similarly epic eight keyboards and four percussionists, and treats its subject matter "in the spirit of the musical 'The Book of Mormon' (Parker/Lopez/Stone, 2011)".

Duration: 70 min.
