Lisa Gerrard has stepped into a storm, composing the score for Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of Christ." Early screenings of the film, centering on the final 12 hours of Jesus' life, have raised concerns among Jewish leaders over potential anti-Semitic interpretations, and stirred debate among theologians about Gibson's sources and motivations.

FUNNY that even after 25-plus years of Lisa Gerrard's musical evolution through Dead Can Dance, her solo recordings and major film-score projects, some fans still showed up at her Orpheum Theatre concert Tuesday dressed in goth black -- one gent bearing the stovepipe hat and tails of a Victorian mortician. Gerrard herself, perched on a cloud of white cloth covering the stage, was, in contrast, full of light and life. Or lives, as she seemed to embody multiple entities.

"IS this working OK?" says musician Lisa Gerrard, wondering if the conversation she's been having makes any sense. "I feel I can never make it work in interviews. I feel like I've just been rambling." She has covered a lot of ground in discussing the reunion of Dead Can Dance, her partnership with Brendan Perry from the early 1980s until their rancorous split in the late '90s.

*** Dead Can Dance, "Into the Labyrinth," 4AD. The Irish-Australian duo molds Gregorian mantras with Bulgarian folk and traditional Celtic, but unlike its previous four albums, the eclectic blend is accessible. The expansion into bolder Middle Eastern and African rhythms breathes life into the dark, gothic ballads, and Lisa Gerrard's eerily crystalline vocals send shivers through this hybrid strain of ancient melodies and modern spiritualism.

Pop music embraces a vast range of performance approaches, but it will never come closer to the formality of classical music than Lisa Gerrard's concert at the Wiltern Theatre on Wednesday. Blurring the line between popular art and fine art, the moonlighting member of the exotic cult duo Dead Can Dance presented music from her solo album "The Mirror Pool." Only true initiates might detect the distinctions between this and her work in Dead Can Dance.

Family members of Brian Epstein are upset over repeated references to the late Beatles manager's 1967 death as a suicide, as has been stated in connection with promotion and coverage of A&E's airing of a documentary on him. The death was ruled an accidental overdose of prescription medication. . . . Dead Can Dance's airy music, influenced by medieval and world sounds, seems an odd match for a story about investigations of the tobacco industry.
