Björk – Jesus Prayer

A video of John Tavener’s ‘Prayer of the Heart’ which he wrote especially for the Icelandic Bjork. It is a stunning setting of the ‘Jesus Prayer’ – “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me”.

“Prayer Of The Heart” is a piece composed by British composer John Tavener for Björk. here performed by Björk and the Brodsky Quartet, taken from the album “John Tavener – A Portrait”.
the song was first used as the soundtrack for a slideshow of photographs by Nan Goldin.

this is an edit of the song i had to do for youtube. the original song has a length of fifteen minutes, so it’s been too long to stream it here…….. every single note felt like a cut into my own flesh :,-(
