Evensong: Music of Caleb Burhans
Burhans: Super Flumina Babylonis (9:24)
Trinity Wall Street Choir / Andrew Megill
“Evensong” is Caleb Burhans’ defining statement of his complex connection to religion — an “emo-classical” epic where sacred meets secular in a dynamic expression of musical influences that range from classical to ambient to post-rock. While the album presents motifs from the Christian church service (book-ended with the opening Magnificat and the closing Nunc Dimittis), it refracts them through the modern lens of new music and the avant garde.
