Arvo Pärt  Stabat Mater
Ivan Moody  Simeron

Some music takes your breath away and Arvo Pärt’s Stabat Mater surely counts as one of the most intensely moving pieces ever written; the expression of suffering and solace unfolds with an opulence of sound that is simply staggering. The recording of the Stabat Mater made by the Goeyvaerts Trio, with three voices, is considered by Gramophone magazine to be in the top ten recordings of all time of this Estonian composer’s music.   Making a perfect pairing with the Stabat Mater is Ivan Moody’s Simeron, another piece whose sonic purity makes for an utterly compelling musical meditation on faith and humanity.  A rare and unmissable opportunity to hear this music within the very special acoustic of St George’s.

‘Each note glows with harmonics and overtones, voices and strings ringing like a struck bell.’ GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE
