“Songs of Ascension” is a major new work from Meredith Monk. Written in 2008, and recorded in 2009 at New York’s Academy of Art and Letters, it is conceived as a continuous composition, a departure from Monk’s recent collaged or episodic works.

As Kyle Gann writes in the liner notes: “Meredith Monk’s been expanding into the worlds of orchestra and ... Read more in Amazon's Meredith Monk Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginnings April 18, 2010
By J. C.
Format:Audio CD
This compilation cd is a great starting point to explore the work of this fantastic artist. The first two songs will reveal the earth from which her voice will continue to bloom, next there begin the more complex vocal textures that she paints so well, a remix of "The Tale" and other early works follow. Ms Monk along with her vocal ensemble create wonderful sonic journeys expressing every color and emotion that exist. Her compositons are mainly soft piano with voice taking the center stage, her music is like a sunrise or sunset or that look in the eye, unforgetable. She guides you gently down the stream of life sometimes suddenly shifting,with great contrast. A must listen, the summit of art music, all of her work in my opinion is 5 star.
My other favorites are: Dolmen Music, Volcano Songs, and Mercy...thank you and bless you Meredith Monk.
