CANCELLED: Film: Sir John Tavener Remembered

Thursday 18 June 11am

Tickets £8.00

Aldeburgh Cinema

John Tavener’s music reflects the life of a deeply religious man who saw music as a form of prayer. In this 2013 film, Tom Service traces the musical and spiritual odyssey of a composer whose acclaim spread beyond the realm of music.

With footage from 40 years of BBC TV archive, we hear excerpts from The Protecting Veil, The Lamb, and his elegiac Song for Athene, which touched people around the world when it was sung at the funeral of Princess Diana.
