CHURCHYARD

Opus Number: 48
Costumes: Alec Sutherland
Lighting: Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed: December 10, 1969

Notes: “Churchyard is a dark and beautiful work, an evocation of the past that may well be a vision of the future, and it is superbly effective… a work of piercing observation which uses as accompaniment a sequence of Medieval music; Taylor, as it were, looks beneath the surface brightness and jollity of the tunes to reveal the horror and anguish of death that stalked the middle ages under the mask of the plague and all the disease that flesh is heir to.” – Clement Crisp, The Financial Times
