The Sparrow
The best-selling novel The Sparrow, by celebrated author Mary Doria Russell, is the basis for this new CD by Metaphor. It tells the story of the first mission to another planet - an inhabitated planet that came to Earth's attention when we received signals that turned out to be music. This CD features a fabulous original cover painting entitled "Quercus corymbion" ( 2007) and other artwork by Patricia van Lubeck
