Winston Tong | Miserere

Miserere ("Mercy") is a long-lost soundtrack album by Winston Tong, the cult performance artist who made his name as a member of the group Tuxedomoon. It was composed in 1985 for a modern ballet of the same name staged by Belgian choreographer Pierre Droulers, based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The lyrics were written by Tong, and the music a collaboration with celebrated Persian-born dancer and vocalist Sussan Deyhim.
Miserere is remarkable in that it was recorded using voices alone, and employs no instruments at all. The effect is both eerie and seductive, and always hypnotic. Closer in tone to Tong's meditative cycle Like The Others (1982) than to his polished 'pop' album Theoretically Chinese (1985), Miserere is now revealed as a major work, which for many years was thought to have been lost. The booklet features Winston's poetic text for Miserere, and still shots from the performance.
