Year 12: Tavener and Postmodernism

Year 12,

I stumbled across an article today on postmodernism (Page 1 here, Page 2 here) (apologies for the quality, it was from the book Information is Beautiful, which has an excellent website, completely unrelated to AS Music, that can be found here). It might be useful background information as you revise Tavener's The Lamb (see YouTube revision videos below).

Lots of material on this piece talks about t89he stylistic features of postmodernism found in Tavener's set work. You may also however come across the phrases 'New Simplicity', or even 'Holy Minimalism'. It is worth doing some reading on these styles, though the stylistic features we have studied will apply to any of the terms.

Thanks,
Mr Guinane
