Another great review! Roger Davidson’s “Universal Sacred Music for Chorus”
ROGER DAVIDSON/Universal Sacred Music for Chorus: After spending all these years convincing us he’s a happy go lucky piano man that enjoys Brazilian jazz, we find out Davidson is an ordained minister that does more than tickle the ivories at coffee houses. Really throwing back the curtain on his spiritual side, Davidson checks in with a religious choral work that’s has the sound and feel of Bernstein at his most serious when he was tackling similar subjects. A deep work that was obviously meant to be lasting, when you are looking for some spiritual music that doesn’t come from the Casio keyboard of a suburban divorcee on a mission, this is the stuff you need to step up to. A fine, refined work throughout.
