Judith Lang Zaimont is internationally recognized for her distinctive style, which is characterized by its expressive strength and dynamism. The works featured on this CD, spanning a creative period of twenty years, attest to the composer's breadth of musical vision. Her Sacred Service for the Sabbath Evening, for soloist, chorus, and symphony orchestra, is a beautiful concert setting of great liturgical and poetic texts. In a very different vein, Parable: A Tale of Abram and Isaac is a compact music-drama that fuses an archetypal biblical story with the World War I–inspired poetry of Wilfred Owen to offer a startling and thoughtprovoking vision. A setting of the beloved poem "A Woman of Valor" and two uplifting Meditations at the Time of the New Year complete this musical portrait of a uniquely gifted composer.

This is one of the most consistently rewarding of the fascinating Milken Archive series. So much so that it leaves one wanting to hear more." —Glyn Pursglove, Classical CD Reviews
