Jonathan Harvey: Death Of Light, Light Of Death, by the Ensemble TM+ directed by Marc Desmons

The Passion of Christ told through music

Exploring Christ’s suffering during his crucifixion and His subsequent resurrection, Jonathan Harvey movingly captures the Passion in this rich and contrasting work. 

A British composer born in 1939, Harvey passed away in 2012. With great altering moods and an oriental feel throughout, this work — a melodic depiction of Grünewald’s Isenheim Alterpiece — is as devastatingly piercing as it is musically complex.
