Sarah Davachi "Gave In Rest (Ba Da Bing!)"
It’s sometimes difficult to describe in words the moving experience of listening to music like Sarah Davachi’s. Somewhere between post-modern classical and ambient, her compositions are ethereal, glacial. Since our pals at Ba Da Bing already did such a good job of it, I’ll let them do the heavy lifting here: “Gave In Rest is a modern reading of early music, reforming sacred and secular sentiments to fit her purview and provide an exciting new way to hear the sounds that exist around us.” Nice job BDB! And nice job Sarah. This album is simply lovely, as is evidenced by the haunting “Evensong.”
