This past autumn saw Gordon's first release on compact disc, when his Water Music: A Requiem appeared on Eternal Light (RCA/Catalyst), an album of choral works by Musica Sacra under the direction of Richard Westenberg. Composed during a period of personal anguish, Water Music balances ideas of death and dying with ones of baptism and rebirth. "Writing that requiem saved me," says Gordon. "I got to write something that pulled me out of the most difficult time."
