John zorn a-cappella quartet
“the group’s second record, “Gomory: The Book of Angels, Vol. 25” (Tzadik) is astonishingly beautiful, a high point in the series […] it sounds medieval and new at the same time.”
– Ben Ratliff, New York Times
Four of the most innovative vocalists around join forces to interpret compositions from John Zorn’s Masada Book II: Book of Angels.
All compositions by John Zorn, all arrangements by Mycale.
Ayelet Rose Gottlieb (Israel / Canada); Sofia Rei (Argentina / USA); Sara Serpa (Portugal / USA); Malika Zarra (Morocco / France)
Between 2007 – 2012 Basya Schechter was part of Mycale, and she is featured on Vol 13.
“A cappella vocal quartet Mycale sounded like the children of Meredith Monk, singing a mix of Latin, Hebrew and Arabic music.”
