Aeterna - Constance Demby
Constance Demby's Aeterna is soaring with expansive, heartfelt piano melodies amidst rich electronic orchestrations and choirs of angelic voices.
Constance Demby's special talent is translating the tradition of sacred music into a 21st century context. First came Sacred Space Music (1982), then her acknowledged masterpiece and "landmark recording" Novus Magnificat (1986). Now she has given us Aeterna, soaring with expansive, heartfelt piano melodies amidst rich electronic orchestrations and choirs of angelic voices. While Novus Magnificat took its inspiration from the sacred choral music of Bach, Aeterna is inspired by the late-19th century romantics Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky. But with Constance Demby at the electronic podium, the music is propelled beyond earthly confines, combining the rich melodicism of the Russian masters with the sublime aspirations of Bach.
