Sacred Music : Sacred Spaces - A Re-Envisioning of A Love Supreme

Almost 50 years have elapsed since A Love Supreme was written and recorded and the spiritual concerns that characterise the composing and playing of John Coltrane remain as relevant today as they did then. A Love Supreme is a devotional statement – a suite of deeply spiritual music in four parts that has since become one the most revered recordings of the 20th Century. Aligned to the summer solstice, Sacred Music - Sacred Spaces presents a bold re-envisioning of this iconic work that will be performed in the warm, spiritually charged setting of The Chapel in Kings College. Sound and Music has helped enable this event, supported by The PRS for Music Foundation, by facilitating rehearsals, supporting the Music Director Orphy Robinson and suggesting the beautiful nearby Kings College Chapel.

By embracing instrumentation from different cultures and spiritual traditions Rowland Sutherland’s arrangements locate this music in a global setting whilst reflecting on life in our own inner cities. Sacred Music - Sacred Spaces will mirror the wise words of John Coltrane and invites you to experience “Elation, Elegance, Exaltation”.
