Twining, Toby (Composer) & Various Performers. TOBY TWINING: CHRYSALID REQUIEM. New York City, NY: Cantaloupe Records, 2002. Other. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New.

Debut Recording of the composer's landmark work. One of Toby Twining's finest achievements. The first and only edition. Produced in a small and limited print run as a Compact Disc. There is no ISBN. The CD is now scarce. Presents Toby Twining's "Chrysalid Requiem". Solemn, "end-of-life"/"afterlife" music, re-invented and re-energized. "Goes straight to the heart of Western music. Moving beyond the mysticism of Tavener and Arvo Part, this intensely spiritual new Requiem is fresh, delirious, and deeply personal. Toby Twining has put together a unique ensemble of singers capable of a phenomenal range of vocal techniques. The amazing result illuminates 1000 years of the Western vocal tradition and transforms the West's most solemn ritual into a celebration of the human voice and the human spirit" (Publisher's blurb). "There's good music, there's great music, and every once in a while, there's mind-blowing music. I cannot recommend this disc highly enough" (American Record Guide). An absolute "must-have" title for Toby Twining collectors. This copy of the Compact Disc (CD) is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Toby Twining. It is signed directly on the cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the CD still available online, is enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Because of its very limited number, its collectible value will not only keep but increase over time. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant composers of our time. A flawless copy. . ISBN B000067DOM. $30.00
