"This recording honors the Jewish liturgical tradition of cantor with organ-- and a rising star of American cantors. The historic 1901 Murray Harris organ at Stanford University is the perfect instrument for this music, which is concentrated in the latter half of the 19th and early 20th centuries." This unusual CD documents a tri-part program of 20th-century music, organized and composed by Robert Bates.  It includes many world premier recordings. With interspersed spoken texts and imaginative programming, Bates explores the nature of the world and ourselves, through verbal themes and non-verbal sound paintings. Music by Bates, Ligetti, Pärt, Guillo, Alain, Hampton, Tower, Demessieux and Messaien. This is the most unusual organ recording in our collection, and it is a masterpiece of invention, symbolism and imagination.
Includes 24-page book on the music and organs used, plus a 16-page graphical audience score.  The Universe Within: A Journey of the Mind-- A Journey of the Body---Life after Life: A Journey of the Soul
