NYP + Smith + Yoon = New EP

June 22, 2010

Surrexit Christus – EP now available on iTunes!
(And other digital download sites, too.)

A digital only “spin-off” of our latest CD Tudor City, Surrexit Christus charts new ground for NYP… both in terms of its content and delivery.

ABOUT THE EP

“For Surrexit Christus, a 3-song digital EP, New York Polyphony teams with experimental composer and performer Bora Yoon.  Yoon, with help from producer Brian McKenna (Btoven), transforms composer Andrew Smith’s spellbinding Surrexit Christus using techniques usually reserved for electronic and alternative music. The result is a lush sound collage, propelled by rhythmic pulses and bass sweeps, that melds Smith’s chilling harmonies with whispered excerpts from Emily Dickinson’s “Because I could not stop for Death.”

Additional tracks include the original mix of Surrexit Christus from New York Polyphony’s acclaimed 2010 Avie Records release Tudor City (AV2186) and the previously unreleased Beata progenies, a composition by the 15th century English composer Lionel Power.”
