Litany for the Whale

Harmonia Mundi
Theatre of Voices, Paul Hillier

I have been performing, reading, looking at, and listening to John Cage's work for years — I number myself amongst those who consider him to be an important composer and not simply an important influence. One of the earliest Theatre of Voices concerts, at London's Almeida Festival in 1990, was devoted primarily to Cage's music, and, since then, I seem to have been working toward this recording. – Paul Hillier
