Part of Southbank Centreís year-long festival, Belief and Beyond Belief, The Protecting Veil blurs the lines between humanity and divinity Ė a glimpse into otherworldliness through the rituals and seasons celebrated around Mary, the Mother of God.

Move even closer to the powerful music in this performance with City of London Sinfonia and Matthew Barley, as they invite audiences to explore the musicís meaning through Living Programme Notes.

In this performance directed from the cello by Matthew Barley, the venue is transformed through lighting and intimate seating, so as to immerse the audience in Tavenerís ecstatic vision.
