Burnside Album Details

Jane Siberry, Shushan the Palace (Hymns of Earth)

Building on an international reputation as one of the great creators and innovators in contemporary popular music, legendary Canadian artist Jane Siberry goes a step further with a recording of mainly classical and traditional sacred songs. Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn and others are interpreted and transformed by Jane and her collaborators on this new album. Strings, horns and woodwinds build a stately foundation for the voice of Jane - and what a voice it is! Fresh from summer festival appearances and singing on Emmylou Harris’ latest album, Siberry sings like the angels she once famously called upon in her much loved "Calling All Angels". Jane will be touring the U.S. through November and December. "A gorgeous contemporary recording." -Calgary Sun "Her passion and enthusiasm breathe new life into these forgotten gems of Holst, Handel, and Bach. ‘Shushan’ is easily the most beautiful album you will ever own." -Stylus, Winnipeg
