The Passion of St Edmund Campion

Anthony Plumridge is one of EWTN’s English directors and I have worked with him on a number of projects. this is the most recent, and is the harrowing account of the betrayal and martyrdom of Campion and two of his friends in Elizabethan England for the crime of being Catholic. It required a very classical sounding score, with hints of William Byrd as well as Beethoven. Broadly, the flashback scenes which tell of his betrayal and capture are dominated by the sound of the harpsichord, whilst the scenes of the trial and torture are given a much more full orchestral treatment, complete with a choral rendition of “Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi”.
