“First it seemed impossible, then even logical and finally… almost obvious: two traditions of modal music, North Indian and European medieval, became merged.” Basler Zeitung, Switzerland, Feb. 2003

“Two Worlds of Modal Music – one of the most remarkable examinations coming out of the Schola Cantorum in Basel is the fortunate meeting between American Ken Zuckerman and the brilliant medieval scholar/ performer Dominique Vellard… one of the most incisive cross-cultural efforts ever. .Robert Aubry Davis, Millennium of Music, May 2004

“During the evening the two hemispheres came closer. The love songs of Jehan de Lescurel flowed into a thrillingly played Raga Manj Khammaj. Finally the Sephardian ‘Ven querida’ and Hildegard von Bingen’s ‘O splendissima gemma’, movingly interpreted by Vellard in a high, clear and sure tenor voice, merged with an alap in Raga Bhairavi, in a unity of incredible beauty that made the question of cultural differences completely superfluous!” Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, February 2003 (more…)
