The Fifth Century: Gavin Bryars

20.00

Premiered by The Crossing and PRISM in July 2014, Gavin Bryars' The Fifth Century is an elegiac setting of meditations of 17th-century metaphysical poet Thomas Traherne - a true magnum opus from one of the world's great composers.  The New York Times called the work a ''poignant lament'' and the performance ''superb'' and ''eloquent.''  

With Gavin's beautiful Petrarch settings, Two Love Songs for women's choir, this album is a fitting soundtrack for a wounded world.

''Eternity magnifies our joys exceedingly.''
