Where Does the Uttered Music Go?
The Willow Consort explores the lasting emotive power of the musical tribute in a collection of works by British composers. Journeying first from a reimagining of a Bennett madrigal and Howell's commemorative motet Take Him, Earth, For Cherishing' to John Tavener's sublime combination of texts from Hamlet and the Orthodox funeral service in his Song for Athene. This poignant programme also features Walton's Where does the Uttered Music Go? and James MacMillan's powerful Tenebrae Responsories.
