Το θέμα που πραγματεύεται ο καθολικός Σκοτσέζος συνθέτης James MacMillan με την Πέμπτη Συμφωνία του, “Le Grand Inconnu” [The Great Unknown] είναι το Άγιο Πνεύμα.
Ακούμε το τρίτο της μέρος, Igne Vel Igne, από την Britten Symphonia και τη χορωδία The Sixteen, υπό τη διεύθυνση του Harry Christophers.

The subject of the 5th Symphony, “Le Grand Inconnu” [The Great Unknown] by the Catholic Scottish composer James MacMillan is the Holy Spirit.
We hear the third part, Igne Vel Igne, performed by Britten Symphonia and The Sixteen Choir. Harry Christophers is the conductor.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
