John Tavener The Lord’s Prayer

A winter solstice programme of spiritual intensity centred on the music of Roxanna Panufnik, interleaved with Renaissance reflections from Gesualdo and Morales.

New arrangements of Panufnik’s ModlitwaO Hearken, and O Tu Andrzej culminate in her work for male voices and quartet This Paradise. Hildegard von Bingen’s chant is the inspiration for Owain Park’s new work, Phoenix Rising, for the same forces.

Moving from Tavener’s extraordinary meditation on the beating heart, originally written for the Brodsky Quartet and Bjork, the programme moves into ideas of love and ends with the sustained beauty of his Lord’s Prayer.

Please note, the duration of this event is approximately 70 minutes and there is no interval.
