About the album
Jeremiah is a prophet of our time. Togni: "It is the role of artists to bring issues to public awareness and to dramatize the dangers of complacency." This album brings an exciting concert for a cappella choir and bass clarinet. It is contemporary music that puts improvised expressiveness, grandeur of the choir, jazz and contemporary sensibilities opposite to each other. Fiery and energetic performances of an excellent reeds virtuoso and one of the leading chamber choirs in Canada. Canadian composer, Togni took 55 minutes of vocal lament and put it on a new vocal composition and added an expressive instrumentation to it. This is the first all-Canadian release on ECM.
