Jóhann Jóhannsson – Drone Mass

Though it’s been four years, the loss of Jóhann Jóhannsson due to an overdose has left a massive hole in contemporary classical music, drone, experimental music, post-rock and so many other genres his work touched on.

This opus, performed by the legendary Paul Hillier and backed my ACME, is as close to heaven as some of us might ever get.  The vocals are haunting, mournful, but sound totally in place since we begin the Western Holy Week as celebrated by Catholics and non-apostolic churches.  Bleak and beautiful.
