In nomine


In 1995 we commissioned Gavin Bryars (b1943) to write a companion piece to Purcell’s Fantazias and In nomines. Bryars chose to imitate the 6-part In nomine and the result was a modern classic. Bryars’s music often seeks to slow the pulse down to a kind of stasis where each event becomes more and more significant. Here he takes as example a majestically slow and inevitable work and extracts significant motifs and then creates a broad canvass to paint a dark and brooding work that revels in the colours of the viols’ extreme ranges.
