This episode begins with a liturgical piece by James MacMillan—a living composer—and ends with another liturgical piece by Wynton Marsalis—another living composer. In between, you’ve got some Saint-Saëns, some Sibelius, and some other music. Jay says some provocative—possibly offensive—things about a couple of cello concertos. Otherwise, it’s sweetness and light, mainly. A good show.
James Macmillan, Miserere
Saint-Saëns, Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor
Bach, Sarabande in E flat
Sibelius, Scherzo from Symphony No. 1 in E minor
Marsalis, Gloria Patri from “The Abyssinian Mass”
