Excellent 20th Century Music
Review By WR113084,January 2011

If you are into the intellectual music of the 20th and 21st Century, this is a must album. Jeffrey Mumford is a professor at Oberlin College and an adjunct Professor at Lorain County Community College.

My favorite was the piece written for the CORE Ensemble, "A Window of Resonant Light". The seven movements take you through different views through a window. The piece concludes with the repetition of the first movement as if telling the listener 'the view changes, yet it is always the same.' more....
