Quick Overview

Divine Compassion

The Divine Compassion is a major work, a full-length cantata for tenor and baritone solos, chorus and organ, with a text based on the Gospel of John.

Like all Lloyd Webber's compositions this one is melodic, skilfully written, romantic and lovely to sing.

By the age of 14, William had already become a well-known organ recitalist, giving frequent performances at many important churches and cathedrals throughout Great Britain. He won an organ scholarship to Mercer's School, later winning a further scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music, where he studied composition with Ralph Vaughan Williams and gained his FRCO diploma at nineteen.
