Joby Talbot: Path of Miracles

Joby Talbot: Path of Miracles

Path of Miracles, for a cappella choir, was commissioned by Tenebrae from Joby Talbot and premiered in 2005. The work is based on the most enduring route of Catholic pilgrimage – the great Pilgrimage to Santiago. The four movements of Path of Miracles are titled with the names of the four main staging posts of the ‘Camino Frances’:

I Roncesvalles
II Burgos
III Leon
IV Santiago

The ‘Camino Frances’ is the central axis of a network of pilgrimage routes to Santiago. Talbot’s music has been performed by, amongst others, the London Sinfonietta, The BBC Symphony Orchestra, The Brunel Ensemble, Evelyn Glennie and The Duke Quartet. In addition, Talbot also writes for the big and small screen. Credits include, The League of Gentlemen and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
