New CD from Judith Lang Zaimont Composer Forum contributor Judith Lang Zaimont has a new CD out from Naxos' Milken Archive of American Jewish Music.

The disc includes excerpts from her Sacred Service for the Sabbath Evening, a concert setting with symphony orchestra; A Woman of Valor for mezzo-soprano and string quartet; Parable: A Tale of Abram and Isaac, an arresting re-telling of the biblical episode based on an anti-war poem by Wilfred Owen; and Meditations at the Time of the New Year for voices and bells.

An interview with Judith about the new CD is up on the Milken Archive web site (

An excerpt from her keynote address to the 2005 National Conference of Women in the Arts was also recently posted on New Music Box.
