This revised edition has been more than 18 months in the making, and is a major milestone on the long journey of preparing Jon’s complete works for publication.
The work was commissioned by the University of Durham in celebration of its 175th anniversary and first performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in the magnificent surroundings of Durham Cathedral on 20 October 2007.
An immediate popular success, the hugely impressive and engaging work, takes just under an hour in performance, and involves a full symphony orchestra together with four soloists: violin, cello, Northumbrian Pipes, and Jon’s own Hammond organ.
Corrected and refined
Conductor Paul Mann‘s new edition takes into account many previously unavailable sources, including an extensive list of corrections made by the composer during the rehearsals for the premiere and for the recording sessions that followed, and also a great many other previously overlooked refinements of detail and orchestration.
