The ten tracks on Wally Brill's CD The Covenant combine the sounds and spirit of Jewish incantations with modern ambient, dub, and other electronic music, and manage to be both intensely reverent and danceable. The dics is one of several heard on this installment of New Sounds that blend the latest currents in avant-garde music with centuries-old music. Other highlights include the Renaissance Players’s Cantigas de Santa Maria; Alcatraz/Kitka’s Cantigas de Amigo; Frank London’s Invocation; and much more.
