Music and Meditation – Tuesdays in Lent

The musicians of Ely Cathedral contribute music expressing the themes of mortality and immortality.

Each piece is preceded by a short meditation from one of the Cathedral clergy exploring the week’s musical treatment of these themes, both in the music itself and in the theological and spiritual threads which can be drawn from it.

Music and meditation together lasts about 20 minutes.
