John Tavener - Missa Wellensis

Missa Wellensis, composed by John Tavener for unaccompanied double choir, was first performed on Sunday 18th May 2014 during the festival new music wells 74-14, by Wells Cathedral Choir conducted by Matthew Owens. It was commissioned by the Cathedral Commissions of Wells Cathedral.

This setting of the Missa Brevis was written as a tribute to the Spanish Renaissance composer Victoria, who inspired Tavener throughout his life. The final movement (Agnus Dei ) includes a quotation from Victoria’s O Vos Omnes from the Tenebrae Responsories.

Available from Music Sales America/Hal Leonard in the US, all good music shops, or outside the US, musicroom.
