And now for something completely heretical...



Crossover projects usually leave me cold. The French producer Hughes de Courson had considerable success in the Francophone world with his Bach and Mozart crossover albums, but I would not grieve if I never heard any of them again. Except that is for one track from his 1997 album Mozart in Egypt. My involvement with Sufism may explain why the Dhikr Requiem Golgotha strikes a chord with me. Listen to it with no preconceptions while pondering on this wisdom from the early Persian Sufi Junaaid of Baghdad: "None achieves that Degree of Truth, until a thousand honest people have testified that he is a heretic".
