Music for Christmas and Advent - The Lamb

MUSIC FOR CHRISTMAS AND ADVENT

The Lamb

 

This is definitely not the typical Christmas music you hear playing on all the radio stations!  Sung by the Choir of King's College in Cambridge, England, "The Lamb" by John Tavener is an ethereal and haunting choral work. I read he wrote this in one afternoon for his nephew who was three years old at the time. It is composed from seven notes using William Blake's text "The Lamb". Only seven notes? I've sung this before but it's been a few years. I think I'll have to find the music and check that out.

Thanks again Ann, for keeping the meaning and spirit of the Christmas season. And as for my dad he had another endoscopy today because he was still lossing blood, and they believe they found the cause. We'll know more tomorrow.

Ann,

Gordon here.  I guess this does make sense when you think of the number 7 and its relevance to completeness... g

Ann:

This haunting reverie of sacred music is very thoughtful and piercing.  It draws you into the wonder of the Savior and his visage as sacrificial.  Great litany of whole notes, exquisite.  Thanks for sharing Him in such a delightful way.

Hi Ann, it's very beautiful and sounds like a lot more than 7 notes to me.
