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.

Music for Cathedrals, Part 1

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Listen to the acoustic and electronic works that make use of cathedral acoustics, or are inspired by the soaring architecture of some of the great old cathedrals on this New Sounds program.  Hear music by Missy Mazzoli, and Victoire from “Cathedral City” – a collection of electroacoustic chamber music works.  There’s music from Jurgen Knieper's original score for the Wim Wenders film, “Wings of Desire,” – the solemn, meditative "Cathedral of Books."  Listen also to music from Briane Keane & Omar Faruk Tekbilek inspired by Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica, which turned into an imperial mosque, and is now a museum in Istanbul, Turkey.
