After a five-year hiatus, Constance Demby released two new CDs in March of 2000. Faces of the Christ is the soundtrack to an Avalon Productions film of the same name. The CD has four separate compositions with seamless transitions between them. In essence, the soundtrack is one single 59-minute piece. Demby has a reputation for creating and performing deeply spiritual and sacred atmospheres. This soundscape is reverent, dynamic, and triumphant with somber overtones. This is an absolute classic disc for all collectors of electronic music. It will appeal to fans of Suzanne Ciani, Nik Tyndall, Giles Reaves, J. Arif Verner, and Michael Stearns.
