More Info:

Luminous Voices presents Brahms' "Ein deutsches Requiem" alongside contemporary pieces by Zachary Wadsworth in the album 'Fire-Flowers.' Exploring themes of loss, grief, and hope, the album is led by Timothy Shantz. Laura Brandt (soprano), Jonathon Adams (baritone), Cheryl Emery-Karapita (piano), and Leanne Regehr (piano) collaborated to bring these pieces to life. Wadsworth's "Battle-Flags," is inspired by Walt Whitman's Civil War experiences. Brahms' iconic Requiem reflects personal tragedies and calls for empathy. The album concludes with "Fire-Flowers," where Wadsworth captures E. Pauline Johnson's poem in a musical tale of optimism and renewal
