Truth Is Fallen (Atlantic SD 1606) 1972
Jazz pianist Dave Brubeck of ‘Take Five’ fame composed this very modern and innovative cantata that blends elements of avant garde, classical, rock and of course jazz. Participants include the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, soprano Charlene Peterson, rock outfit New Heavenly Blue, and Brubeck on piano. Often a very dissonant harsh tone that conjures up images of Carmina Burana and the 2001 soundtrack. The rock angle is pretty intense when it surfaces. Draws inspiration from passages in Isaiah and Jeremiah. Can be a difficult listening experience but it certainly is creative. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
