Welcome to the voice

I was warned, but I ended up buying Steve Nieve og Muriel Teodori's opera "Welcome to the voice" (Deutsche Grammophone, 2007). The idea behind this piece is the meeting of different voices. The profane voices, Sting (Dionysos), Robert Wyatt (the friend) and Elvis Costello (chief of police!) meet the sacred voices (the opera singers). The record has some good Wyatt-moments, and if you are a big fan of Sting, you should buy this. It's really not my cup of tea, but hey, I'm trying to be positive here!
