20th Anniversary Album
Philip Glass’s magnum symphonic opus Symphony No. 5: Requiem, Bardo, Nirmanakaya draws from diverse spiritual wellsprings—including the Bible, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Koran, Hindu scriptures, and West African traditions—to create an epic narrative. The release of the album by Orange Mountain Music celebrates the 20th anniversary of the piece’s premiere and is the first recording captured with all the participants in one space (Trinity Church).
