Episode #3266

Inspired by Cathedrals

« previous episode | next episode »

Friday, November 04, 2011

This New Sounds program is full of music inspired by particular cathedrals, like English composer Joby Talbot's work, "Leon," from "Path of Miracles," written for the choir Tenebrae.  Its namesake is the León Cathedral, a French-style Gothic cathedral built in the 13th century in northwest Spain along the pilgrim route Camino de Santiago.  

We’ll also hear from acoustic “American Primitive” fingerstyle guitar wiz, the late Jack Rose, with his “Cathedral Et Chartres” from the singular record, “Kensington Blues” – a mixture of  ragtime, ragas, country blues and lap steel guitar works.  Plus, music from the Swiss composer Paul Giger, New Zealander Christopher Blake, and a piece from James Clapperton's "The Cathedral at Freiburg."
