Voices of Light, inspired by the classic French silent film "The Passion of Joan of Arc," works as a cinematic accompaniment, but it's not movie music. Influenced by minimalism and the likes of Gorecki and Part, Einhorn's music is tonal and accessible. The texts--in Latin and antique French--are from the Bible, and from writings by (mostly) medieval women, including Joan of Arc herself. Joan is represented by the reliably intelligent and well-tuned Anonymous 4 (Ruth Cunningham, Marsha Genensky, Susan Hellauer and Johanna Rose); soprano Susan Narucki sings her often high-flying lines with beauty and clarity. - Sarah Bryan Miller

"Unlike many large-scale productions of the time, Dreyer did not have a pre-written score sent with the film. The restoration uses the operetta music of Richard Einhorn and instrumental music composed by Adrian Utley and Will Gregory. The music is hauntingly beautiful and will tear viewers’ hearts out. The score elevates the film, providing an extra layer of depth and pathos."
