Cthulhu in a Classical Vein

In its ongoing effort to provide our customers with the most interesting and unusual Lovecraftian entertainment, we're delighted to present the Cthulhu Cantata. It's weird, it's classical. HPL would probably have loved it. We think you will too.
Composer Richard Thomas Hill (b. 1969) fuses a Baroque sacred music form with 21st century musical language using prose and poetry of H. P. Lovecraft as well as original lyrics by the composer and Charles Moore, Jr. The result is a piece of ritual music worthy of the cult featuring stunning vocal performances from professional singers well versed in Baroque and Classical music as well as modern techniques.
