Notes and Editorial Reviews

Naji Hakim has established himself as a performer and composer whose works are indelibly tied to his Christian faith. Recognized with a papal medal for his activities, these pieces are drawn from the span of his compositional career, combining organ music with string quartet and solo soprano.

This is Signum’s third disc with Naji Hakim, following solo organ discs from Glenalmond college (SIGCD130) and the van den Heuvel organ of the Danish Radio Theatre (SIGCD222):

“… For all that one is used to Hakim’s coruscating brilliance, the sheer technical skill and white-hot intensity of the Hakim imagination in blending these dirge-like themes into music left this Scotsman duly open mouthed" The Scotsman
