AOP Blog – now with more blogging!

October 7, 2008

We do a lot here at AOP on a daily basis. Perhaps too much to think that we have time to update our blog more often. But, you should know what we’re doing. And what we’re thinking. And what we’re thinking about doing.

So, we’re going to start more postings and interacting with other blogs and getting you to talk back to us. We may live in a vacuum of opera here, but there’s no reason we shouldn’t try to suck you in!

Tarik O’Regan’s Threshold of Night debuts in Billboard Top 10

Heart of Darkness composer Tarik O’Regan‘s new choral CD Threshold of Night debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard Classical Chart upon its release in September. The CD from Harmonia Mundi was the pick of the week when WNYC proclaimed, “Tarik O’Regan, Britain’s hottest young choral composer, often treads a line between very ancient and very new music. Some of the tracks on his latest album, “Threshold of Night,” sound vaguely like Renaissance polyphony but then, they also recall the spiritual, Eastern European branch of minimalism, with its repetitive, ear-pleasing textures.”
