Product Description Header Image Information about Tavener J : Ex Maria Virgine (CD)

Admired for the sheer beauty of his meditative and mystical music, John Tavener writes of his Ex Maria Virgine, which was dedicated to HRH the Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall in joyful celebration of their marriage: ?I have set both familiar and less well known texts, and linked them with an expanding and contracting phrase ?Ex Maria Virgine?. This refers to Mary the Mother of God??The Eternal Feminine??and should be sung with great radiance and femininity.? The other, mainly unaccompanied, works reveal Tavener?s response to various poetic texts that also praise the Virgin Mary.

Tavener, John

Traditional / Bible - New Testament / Woodward, George Ratcliffe / Dearmer, Percy / Ravenscroft, Thomas / Ballet, William, lyricist(s)
