The Song of Luke
by Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam.

An extended setting of a religious libretto for vocal soloists, chorus and instruments, for performance either in concert or in church.

Cyprian has created a brilliant new musical setting of Luke's familiar infancy narrative. "What I have always loved about the Gospel of Luke," he explains in the program notes, "is that everyone seems to burst into song. There is a tradition that Luke may have been an artist, perhaps even the first iconographer, since he paints such stunning tableaus with his words, but most assuredly he was a poet and singer. That was my first inspiration to write The Song of Luke."

So he decided to write an oratorio based on the Gospels for the Christmas cycle and to tie them together with the great canticles so that they could be performed together as a program. The Song of Luke is an oratorio "in the earliest sense of the term": An extended setting of a religious libretto for vocal soloists, chorus and instruments, for performance either in concert or in church. Cyprian gives each of the principal characters a certain voice, dance, and instrument: the oboe for Mary, the bassoon for Elizabeth, the cello for Zechariah, and the clarinet for Gabriel. 

Beautifully recorded with professional musicians, the CD features the Santa Fe Desert Chorale, with Linda Mack conducting, the Phoenix Chamber Ensemble, conducted by John Pennington, and nationally recognized vocal soloists. 

It's inspiring listening for Advent and Christmas and anytime we reflect on Christ's coming into the world as one of us. Includes 25 tracks totaling 60 minutes of music.

Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam:

Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam, is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation, musician, composer, author, and teacher. Much of both his music and his teaching revolve around the Universal Call to Contemplation through spirituality and the arts.

Bio:
Cyprian Consiglio, OSB Cam, grew up near Illinois and later spent years living in Phoenix, Arizona, where he worked as a professional musician, performer (guitarist and vocalist), arranger and producer. He earned his master’s degree in theology from St. Johns Seminary in Camarillo, California, and was ordained in 1998. A student of the writings of Bede Griffiths and Abhishiktananda, Cyprian has a great love for comparative religion and he has been to India several times to study and teach.

Along with his six collections of original music recorded and published through OCP, Cyprian released three others through the Equilibrium label with his longtime collaborator, percussionist John Pennington, as well as two other collections self-published out of Singapore. The Equilibrium collections are titled Awakening, The Song of Luke and Compassionate and Wise. Another collection to his credit is Wait, My Soul, In Silence, music for meditation created in collaboration with Laurence Freeman for MedioMedia. He has also collaborated on several collections of a capella sacred music for the church year with the Collegeville Composers Group.

Cyprian is prior to the New Camaldoli Hermitage in the Diocese of Monterey in California.
