The Interior Christ
The Interior Christ: Suite for Mixed Chorus with Occasional Harp
"Knock and it shall be opened" Impeccably performed by the Vedantic Arts Ensemble (14 world class choral singers), this suite is conducted by the acclaimed Timothy Mount and features harpist Susan Jolles. Together, they create music that ranges from quiet, meditative calm to soaring, searing intensity. Settings from the Christian mystics, the Ordinary of the Mass, the Bible, and the Hesychast Prayer, all celebrate the joy, struggle and consummation of inner peace and spiritual life.
