“Voices of Light”

The Passion of Joan of Arc is one of a handful of movies which made a big impact on my life– not just as a cinephile, but as a person. Preachy junk like the Left Behind films  have nothing on this masterpiece, which examines faith and suffering with such power that no one who has ever seen it has forgotten it. The Criterion Collection release of the movie comes with the “Voices of Light” score by Richard Einhorn, a beautiful piece inspired by prayers and medieval music. Here is a video with excerpts from that score. Enjoy!
