Jonathan Harvey's (b. 1939) music has an otherworldly, transcendent quality. The Guardian puts it quite simply: "There is no more consistently wonderful composer than Harvey, no other contemporary music-classical or otherwise-that makes your jaw drop with joy and delight at the sheer voluptuous possibilities." Ensemble Signal surveys the spectrum of Harvey's spiritual explorations, performing works inspired by a moving Renaissance altarpiece of the crucifixion and the ancient Sanskrit hymns of the Rig Veda.
