I do not intend to evaluate the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in any form here. The basic situation for me in this respect is very simple: I have not been able to identify with any intellectual argumentation or analysis, for I have always had a feeling of incompleteness.

There are generally two ways one can face a crisis. One can give up, or one can persevere and use it to one’s advantage. Choir director Dominick DiOrio definitely chose the latter during the pandemic, turning his reflections and sentiments about it into a profoundly engaging, almost philosophical choral album titled WHAT IS OURS. DiOrio conjures a formidable cross-section of music by a range of contemporary composers that not only reflects the diversity and multiplicity of modern-day America, but also its underbelly of struggle, challenge, and an eventual triumph of humanity.
