Desert Island Discs: No.6 ‘Magnum Mysterium’

Continuing with my obsession with choral music, though this extraordinary piece of contemplative liturgical music is by a modern composer – Danish-American Morten Lauridsen. It helps that this recording is from Westminster Cathedral and is high quality (for Youtube).

One to play with the lights off, and no interruptions.

  1. Hi Tom,
    If you didn’t hear it, you should listen to the Henryk Gorecki show from Radio 3 last night (the 6th). Loads of great choral stuff…

    Hope you’re well,
    Gwil
