Format: Audio CD
The libretto is a collage of texts from different sources.

First Dorothy Day opens the libretto and intervenes all along. "Intrigued by the Catholic faith for years, Dorothy Day converted in 1927. In 1933, she co-founded The Catholic Worker, a newspaper promoting Catholic teachings that became very successful and spawned the Catholic Worker Movement, which tackled issues of social justice guided by its religious principles. Day also helped establish special homes to help those in need. . . In addition to her writing for The Catholic Worker, Day also penned several autobiographical works. She explained her religious conversion in 1938's From Union Square to Rome, writing the book as a letter to her brother, an ardent communist. In 1952, Day released her second autobiography, The Long Loneliness." (Dorothy Day © 2014. The Biography.com website. Available from: [...], Accessed 05 Aug 2014).

Three interventions of Rosario Castellanos. She was born on May 25, 1925 in Mexico City, Mexico and died on August 7, 1974, in Tel Aviv, Israel. She was a novelist, a short-story writer, a poet, an essayist and a diplomat, probably the most important Mexican woman writer of the 20th century. Her 1950 master's thesis, Sobre cultura femenina ("On Feminine Culture"), became an inspiration for modern Mexican women writers, a strong summon for self-awareness.

Two excerpts from June Jordan. She was born in 1936 and she died in 2002. She was "one of the most widely-published and highly-acclaimed African American writers of her generation, poet, playwright and essayist. June Jordan was also known for her fierce commitment to human rights and progressive political agenda.

A quite wonderful new work from John Adams. It would be difficult to imagine a more fluent and exciting performance than this by Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic and a wonderful cast of singers. The recording is first class.

I admit to a bias in adoring John Adams. This is perhaps a sequel to El Nino, and reminded me a lot of Colm Tobin's novella "The Testament of Mary", in its alternative perspective to the story we all think we know so well. I love the perpetual rolling sound of Adams' music. Not always easy listening, but never, for a second, not worthwhile. Back in the day people would look forward to Handel's latest oratorio - we should be happy that someone is doing the same for us.

This is a remarkable recording. The Gospel According to the Other Mary is, for me, a masterpiece that stands next to Bach's famous Passions as their 21st century counterpart. This review is biased: I was lucky to be in Walt Disney Hall on Sunday, March 10, 2013, to experience the semi staged performance directed by Peter Sellars. It was the third of three performances, and I found it to be a shattering experience. (The world premiere was given in concert performances in May 2012, which were followed by revisions by the composer, resulting in a shorter, much more dramatically and emotionally coherent version). Hearing the recording made during the days of early March 2013 brings back very special memories, especially visual ones. The recording is very well done, but may perhaps be somewhat daunting for the person who hears this music for the first time: Sellar's production was congenial to Adam's vocal, choral, and orchestral writing: solo and ensemble voices, choral voices, dense orchestral sound as well as tender chamber music and solo instrumental accompaniments, together with movement of singers and dancers/mimes, and stage lighting; everything blended extremely well together - this muliti-dimensionality is lost in the audio recording, superb as it is (hopefully, there will be a DVD of this piece, so that one can at least get some impression of the audio-visual whole). Vocal soloists as well as LA Chorale and Philharmonic give this great work their all.Read more ›

I liked El Nino very much. So I had high hopes about this work. El Nino was an oratorio about christmas, The Gospel According to the Other Mary is about easter, Jesus death on the cross and resurrection.
I have read the other rewiews and find that reception has been very variable. I`m not surprised. Some tell that this is on the level of Bach`s passions. This is certainly not true.
After hearing this work many times I`m still disappointed.What was wonderful in El Nino was the spontaneity and force of the musical invention. Every times after hearing it I was deeply moved. Could it be that John Adams and Peter Sellars have TRIED too hard to create a new work of the same musical level? And they have tried too hard.
Especially the second part which really tells about Jesus sufferings and resurrection I find dull. The music is all times slow and peaceful but without the necessary variety and depth. I hardly noticed when the piece finished. Also I find the work really too long.
So I cannot give more than three stars. The performance itself is very good. But the inspiration has left Mr.Adams at this occasion.
