English composer Margaret Rizza's distinctive style of hauntingly beautiful melodies is now recognized around the world as an example of all tht is holy and best in sacred music. Her compositions are written as ostinatos or mantras with simple repetitive melodies, carrying short, usually Scriptural, texts. Each piece may be sung by one person or many (in glorious choral parts), unaccompanied or backed by a whole musical group.
GIA is proud to re-release Ms. Rizza's Fountain of Life for U.S. and Canadian audiences.
