Review By Sherri Rase,,March 2012

“Critical Models” is Mohammed Fairouz’s latest release on Sonos Luminus and the selections on it are a delicious sample of the composer’s work in various media, from small string and orchestral groupings to airs for guitar. Each piece invites a different sort of attention.

“Litany” takes inspiration from the Azan, the call to prayer that varies from Muezzin to Muezzin, or leader, based on location. Very distinct and happening at five times throughout the day, this combines the melody of the Azan with the awakening of the town where it occurs, according to the composer. It is very easy to imagine an Arab-esque “Handel in the Strand.”
