Programme Note
John Tavener The Cappemakers (1964)
BRIEF PROGRAMME NOTE

Skilfully using the text of the original York Mystery Play, the composer has written vivid dramatic accounts of the Woman taken in Adultery and the Raising of Lazarus from the Dead. The two scenes, although independent of each other, are linked by an extended musical interlude.
