I can't believe he's finally done it! Kerry Livgren's new / very old baby, "CANTATA - THE RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS", has been released

I've been following its progress since 2006, first in eager anticipation and then slowly giving up hope (and between then and now Kerry even had a serious stroke to deal with!). Look at this entry from his website news page in March 06:

3/25/06: We get many inquiries about Kerry's Cantata. Kerry Livgren essentially finished composing his Cantata in 2001, an effort spanning over twenty years. (The word "finished" is carefully chosen, knowing the composer's penchant for re-working compositions) Unfortunately it keeps getting put on the "back burner" as other album projects materialize.

The Cantata is quite unlike anything he has composed before, yet has musical characteristics that will be recognizable as his work. "The closest thing I can compare it to, if I must make a comparison, is a modern musical production like "Les Miserables".

The Cantata's full title is "Cantata: The Resurrection of Lazarus", and is based on the Biblical account in the Gospel of John. The production work continues - the orchestration, casting, recording, etc., with , as Kerry says, "a cast of thousands". We're not yet ready to announce a date..
