This album is the culmination of a Phrygian Phish project for Mission to Empty Purgatory ( MTEP is a Catholic Apostolate with the mission of spreading devotion to the holy souls in purgatory through the recitation of the St. Gertrude prayer. Our Lord promised that 1,000 souls from purgatory would be released with the recitation of this prayer.

This is a soundtrack/soundscape for the recitation of a St. Gertrude Chaplet, which is praying a single St. Gertrude prayer for every bead on the rosary, starting at the crucifix, going around the "loop", and back down the crucifix. That amounts to 64 prayers.

Musically, I have employed my fractal composition technique on the chords and keys to make the listening experience both varied and similar from beginning to end.

There are two tracks. The St. Gertrude Chaplet has four voices reciting the prayer along with the music. The other is an instrumental version with just the music, excellent for private recitation once you get the hang of the timing.

Although there is a clear nod to the masters of thrash metal and progressive music, Last Rites has a style of its own. ... more
