Editorial Reviews

John the Revelator is a full-length choral Mass which finds roots in Kline's childhood memories of Gospel Blues and rural camp revival meetings. Kline cites Renaissance music, Bruckner, the Beach Boys and Samuel Beckett as influences. The New York Tims writes that this offbeat but ultimately moving ceremony suggests the tonal richness of Barber, the austerity of Stravinsky, and the harmonic piquancy of Ligeti.

Format: Audio CD
Phil Kline's preferred "flat" vocal affect may be off-putting to folks unfamiliar with it, but if this is new to you, just download any of the "ordinary" parts of this mass and listen to the stunning skill in the singing. Once that sinks in, start listening for the creative blending of harmonics and then styles. Finally, listen for the wonderful, unique spirituality that suffuses this great piece, especially in the contexts Kline creates. Others write intelligently elsewhere of Kline's musical influences, but no one can deny the unique beauty of his compositions. A great work.

I heard this piece performed live in NYC a few years ago. Having the CD is a wonderful way to remember a musical experience that I did not want to end.

This is the work that introduced me to Phil Kline; I heard this on WQXR Q2 awhile back, and I was awestruck by the powerful compositions. After I bought this CD, ripped it, and put it on my ipod, I felt shivers run up and down my spine on the first two listens on the train. Beautiful, haunted, and harmonically rich, this is definitely a worthwhile purchase.
