Orange Mountain Music presents this album of choral music by Philip Glass. The first work on the record is a re-issue of the Los Angeles Master Chorale's performance of Glass' large-scale orchestra and choral oratorio Itaipu. The piece was inspired by the giant hydro-electric dam in Brazil. It was part of a series of pieces Glass has done involving depictions of nature, man's relationship to nature, and also more generally fell into a recurrent theme in Glass' catalog involving the country of Brazil. Itaipu is conducted by Los Angeles Master Chorale Music Director Grant Gershon. The second work on the album is Philip Glass' only work for chorus a cappella. Three Songs are set to poems by three prominent writers, Leonard Cohen, Octavio Paz, and Raymond Levesque. Three Songs is performed by the Crouch End Festival Chorus conducted by David Temple and is a re-issue of the Silva Screen recording of the work from 2000.

The Light and Itaipu originated as Glass's response both to nature and to a modern technological wonder. Noting in an interview that his music has always been strongly programmatic and that program music arose as a response to nature, Glass subsequently embarked on an analogous series of symphonically conceived "portraits of nature" similar to his "portrait operas" (Einstein on the Beach, Satyagraha, concerned with the life of Mahatma Gandhi, and Akhnaten). The result is a vivid portrait of musical evocations that merge and metamorphose as the music sweeps toward its destination, often reinforced and contrasted in unexpected ways, by summoning up a body of thoughts, mental pictures, and attitudes.
