John Tavener: The Hidden Face

Books | Countertenor, Oboe, Violin, Viola

Publisher: Chester Music
Composer: John Tavener
Format: Sheet Music | Score
The Hidden Face is a prayer, for solo counter-tenor, oboe, and a distant group of muted violins and violas. It tries to hold within it a whole tradition with nothing personal or idiosyncratic, as in ikon painting, though this is a severe challenge for a composer working at the end of the 20th Century.
