Lee Hyla's Lives of the Saints, a work for solo voice and chamber ensemble, not only took theology as its subject, but also amounted to a virtual musical treatise. (Andrew Druckenbrod, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) "The music conveys the story like a friend that uses her voice, arms, hands, shoulders and face to tell a story." ("BobH" on amazon.com) Part I of Lives of the Saints is for advanced performers. Dur.: 20' (intended to be performed together with Part II, total duration 42'.).
