June 2018 Manchester. Andrew Budden, PsapphaEnsemble – French Horn. (‘Testimony’ is the first in a series of solo works exploring the structure of mobile form and the way in which material can be re-contextualised depending on a performer’s decisions, or to study a certain musical element from a different angle. Testimony takes its title from the testimony of the four gospel writers who give accounts of Jesus Christ, each focusing on particular aspects of his work, character and message. For example, John focuses a lot on Christ’s identity as God made flesh, whereas Luke emphasises Jesus’ interaction with the outcasts and needy in society. Together, the four accounts give a fully orbed picture.)
(A behind-the-scenes documentary on the TheoArtistry Composers’ Scheme, which brought together theologians and composers to collaborate on six new works of sacred music. Featuring world-renowned composer Sir James MacMillan, Professor at the University of St Andrews’ Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts.)
