Tavener Lament for Jerusalem
The Choir of London marks the passing of one of the leading composers of our time with a late-night performance of Sir John Tavener’s Lament for Jerusalem.
The choir first performed the work ten years ago at Christ Church Spitalfields in their first concert, and have since performed Tavener’s ‘Jerusalem’ version (arranged especially for the choir) across the Middle East. Described by the composer as a “mystical love song”, the piece incorporates texts from Christian, Islamic and Jewish sources to create a universal lament for lost paradise.
Running time: 1hr
