The golden music of Margaret Rizza
Occasionally a new, distinctive sound appears in sacred music. It has happened again with Margaret Rizza's wonderful music.
This rich, deeply contemplative music depends for its effect on simple, repetitive melodies carrying short, usually scriptural texts.
Each of the pieces may be sung by one person alone, by two or three gathered together, by hundreds, or by a choir. They may be unaccompanied, accompanied by a single instrument or by a whole group. The choice is yours and everything you need for both voices and instruments is in the full scores.
There are also beautiful recordings for those who wish to just sit, listen and pray.
