Padre Pio Prayer

Padre Pio Prayer

The Sixteen
Conductor Harry Christophers
Music by James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Will Todd

"The result of a fascinating partnership with the Genesis Foundation, this disc features new commissions from three of Britain’s most respected contemporary composers: James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Will Todd. Whilst all are based on the prayer of the Capuchin priest, Padre Pio (the familiar name by which millions know St Pius of Pietrelcina), each new work is very different, but communicates equally powerfully the multitude of emotions expressed in the prayer – anxiety, frailty, warmth, confidence, ecstasy and, ultimately, peace. The brilliance of these three composers is exemplified not just by these remarkable new pieces but also by other works featured on this CD which The Sixteen brings to radiant life."   Harry Christophers

 

This album contains Will Todd's pieces Stay With Me Lord and Among Angels.
