Revelation Window


Revelation Window, for double choir, is based on the 1995 stained glass window of the same name in Manchester Cathedral, the work of the glass artist Antony Hollaway (1928-2000). The piece uses a wordless text whose syllables reference the words ‘light’, ‘colour’ and ‘revelation’ in a number of languages. The blocks of harmonic colour reflect the bold outlines of the window. Revelation Window was commissioned by the Seattle-based choir The Esoterics in 2010. The first performance was accompanied by a time-lapse film of light passing behind the window.
