KING OF KINGS tonight at Riverside Church demonstrated how to do the art of film accompaniment with a panache, uniformity, style, subtlety and CLASS that should be the example for the rest. It's that simple. Just brilliant and intelligent and, as a result, engaging in a way that was communicative and worthy of tremendous respect. Bach at the Garden of Gethsemane, the Agnus Dei chant at an appropriate moment and shadows of Mahler were but a few of the interwoven thoughts. It really doesn't get much better than this."
