Dhammapada is a choral piece of exceptional beauty and spirituality – a collaboration between renowned choral composer and Anglican priest, Ronald Corp, and Buddhist writer, Francis Booth. Dhammapada – meaning ‘the path to the truth’ – contains the words of the Buddha, compiled by his followers after his death 2,500 years ago. It contains the Buddha's key messages expressed in striking and beautiful images. It is spiritual without being religious – a manual for living a good life. Although it is the core text in Buddhism, it has never before been set to Western music.

 

 

Corp's music is both meditative and inspiring, capturing perfectly the soothing and didactic nature of the Buddha's words. It is entrancing a cappella music. The eight choral movements are interspersed with recordings of bells from important Buddhist sites.

These two aspects of the work, as it was originally conceived, produce an effect of simplicity and wonderment, immediately transporting the listener to a more serene state of mind.
