Musica Sacra

I caught this programme whilst idly channel hopping the other night and then delighted to see it in its entirety on YouTube. It's a gem. Absolutely what the BBC should be about. Intelligent, entertaining, informative, uplifting.

I am particlarly taken by the sections dealing with the Sage of Southbrae, the good Dr James MacMillan (Upon Whom Be Peace). Tavener seems to have lost it a bit, but I still like Song For Athene, despite the obvious associations.

Enjoy it.

This was, obviously, a repeat of 'Sacred Music'. If you missed the full series the BBC has recently brought it out on DVD. A truly wondrous experience. The Sixteen are superb
