Preceded by Nove Cantici per Francesco d’Assisi and Virtue (for Julian of Norwich), Teresa de Ávila is the third and final CD in Zorn’s trilogy inspired by towering figures of Christian mysticism. Written for the all-star acoustic guitar trio of Bill 
Frisell, Julian Lage and Gyan Riley whose performances are steeped in a feeling of 
love and mutual respect, the music is both beautifully simple and strangely complex,
drawing equally on classical modernism, bluegrass, jazz, Jewish and renais- 
sance music. Filled with compositional surprises, mysterious moods, beautiful 
harmonies and a stunning lyricism, Teresa de Ávila is a must-have for all fans of 
acoustic guitar music. This is one of the most personal and varied books of music 
Zorn has yet written—a lovely tribute to the enduring legacy of one of the world’s 
most beloved spiritual figures. Includes an extended appreciation by renown 
philosopher Arnold Davidson.
