About

The Judas Tree is the fruit of a collaboration between the poet Thomas Blackburn (1916–77) and composer Peter Dickinson. The Washington Cathedral performance is captured here.

Blackburn explores the role of Judas in the events leading up to Christ’s passion and death. The varied types of music are deliberately designed to exploit Blackburn’s telling imagery.

In the words of The Washington Post: ‘No one can come away from a performance of this work unmoved by its drama, untouched by its poetry, untroubled by its meaning’.
