Programme Note
John Tavener Marienhymne (2005)
Time and time again I have been drawn to Schuon's vision of the Virgin Mary as Universal and Primordial Woman. Marienhymne celebrates Mary in this dimension. The work should be performed in a large acoustic, with a great distance between the main choir and the echo choir. The music should be sung with radiance and ecstasy, reflecting Schuon's vision. J.T.
