Lorelei Ensemble, a critically acclaimed choir of women's voices, releases an EP of James Kellembach's "Antigone." Merging Sophocles original dramatic framework with texts from the Nazi opposition group White Rose in Munich in the 1940s, Kellembach expresses the timeless nature of resistance. James K allembach's works have been commissioned and performed by Brooklyn Art Song Society, Chorus pro Musica Boston, Lorelei Ensemble, Lydian Quartet, San Francisco Symphony, and Seraphic Fire, among others. He has received honors from ASCAP, ACDA, American Composers' Forum, Pacific Chorale, ALEA III in Boston, and VocalEssence. He has written extensively for the voice, producing a large catalogue of song cycles and oratorios for voices and instruments. His St. John Passion, Four Romantic Songs, Most Sacred Body, and Antigone have been commercially recorded. The Boston Musical Intelligencer praised him as "a colorful and imaginative orchestrator, word painter, and provider of singable lyrical lines" who could "wring emotion from a dictionary."
