AllMusic Review by

Wally Brill's Covenant mixes historical recordings of cantors (Jewish Liturgical singers) from the '20s, '30s, and '40s with world, ambient, and dub elements to create timeless but innovative soundscapes. Along with the contributions of avant-garde guitarist David Torn, the album's arrangements include tablas, didgeridoo, trumpet, and Tibetan singing bowls, as well as keyboards and acoustic and electronic percussion. Covenant's intense sound and unique approach takes the best from old and new musical worlds.
