Sir John Tavener's Requiem

Wednesday 5 March 2008 19:00-20:45 (Radio 3)

Petroc Trelawny presents a concert given at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral last month.

Rachmaninov's unaccompanied choral setting of the All-Night Vigil draws on Orthodox Church chants, and in Sir John Tavener's new work, commissioned as part of Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture, he attempts to reconcile the world's warring religions through music and the contemplation of death.

Duration:

1 hour 45 minutes

Playlist:

Josephine Knight (cello)
Andrew Kennedy (tenor)
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko, Ian Tracey (conductors)

Rachmaninov: All-Night Vigil (Vespers)
