The longer I listen to Dead Symphony No. 6, the more I love it! Movement II (St. Stephen) is particularly killer. But the whole disc moves me.
Movement VII (To Lay me down) and Movement X (Bird Song)... hard to choose a fave!

Really interesting how it all came together, reading the liner notes. Received my copies yesterday. Simply beautiful!
Here's an article and interview about the composer, Lee Johnson:
Yo Soy Boricua!
I was brought up on a strict regimen of classical and gospel music.
I will definately be checking this out.
Many thanks for the heads up~!
“The Omnipotent Grateful Dead!”
Tell us more about this music? Does #6 mean there are five more? Etc.!
Just wanted to let everyone know about this killer new CD, Dead Symphony No. 6!
Whether you are a lover of classical music or not, as a Deadhead you will surely enjoy this disc thoroughly! I bought a copy for myself, and my Mom (also a Deadhead) and her immediate reaction was "Where can we see these guys on tour?!"
Be sure to check it out!!
