Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Book of Revelation has long been one of the most discussed sections of the Bible and the notion of the Apocalypse has been reinterpreted with the passing of time. The premise of this release is to explore the struggle between good and evil through a thought-provoking combination of narrative and music. There is a recurring theme of contrast throughout, the ideas of light, joy and warmth opposed with those of darkness, devastation and pain. The texts of the Apocalypse are followed by music in honour of the Virgin Mary, the beautiful melodies of which create a completely different atmosphere of reverence and praise.
