Denver Women's Chorus
Review by: Len
"Where I Live" is a beautiful recording of a commissioned work on the subject of Breast Cancer written by Diane Benjamin. An emotional and direct glimpse into those effected by the disease. Those effected ranging from victims being diagnosed to the very lonely and frustrated helpless state of the attendants. The goal was to create a piece which is widely accessible to various size of chorus. All was taken into account in
this work of highly important music. The CD is a mix of song and spoken word beautifully combined. I doubt that any person with a heart could listen and not be touched by the sincerity and honesty of the work.
While the subject matter is weighty and emotionally difficult, the presentation is a testament to the survivors, victims and Denver Women's Chorus alike. Done with dignity and open approach, "Where I Live" hits home. The musical value of the CD is priceless. The wide range of emotions shown through lyric, spoken word, and excellent orchestration is incredible. All together form a thoughtful and brave statement of support. In an isolated look at just the musical content alone the work is astounding.
The CD is thirteen tracks strong, and I do mean strong. No stone is left unturned including the environmental causes of the disease. Musically there is a new age feel which transcends well with the oration of cancer patients and the seven choral songs. The music is just as compelling as the lyrics and oratory delivery. A beautiful work of female voice, which not only touches but enlightens. A definite must for all female or male listeners. To learn more about this CD and the Denver Women's Chorus visit their website.
