Fugue for the Sacred Songbook: In Eb Minor

· winter 2020 · 1 comment · for

Dissonance begs for resolution. Fugue for the Sacred Songbook: In Eb Minor resumes the tune from the previous book in Keith A. Robinson’s Master Symphony Trilogy. This time, heroes are taken captive and transported to a very unfriendly place, and their allies must orchestrate their rescue. But even this rescue may be used against them. Robinson again depicts music as a powerful force in this otherworldly universe, used as means to fight, manipulate, heal, and brainwash. Though some characters struggle with right and wrong, most seem to fit solidly in categories of either very good or very bad. Fugue for the Sacred Songbook plays a lyrical read, though without much subtlety regarding the author’s ideas.

Best for: Adult readers.

Discern: A particular culture takes pleasure in causing people pain and suffering; some scenes portray severe and even violent discord between family members.

    Interesting. Eb makes me think of the beginning of the Lennon/McCartney Song, “If I Fell.” It begins with the creative, amazing chord progression Eb, Ebdim, Db. Bminor7, Eb, D, Eminor. A.
