by Byrd and Purcell: JOHN BECKETT (harpsichord)
from The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, translated by David MacArshack with Leo McKern as the Grand Inquisitor.
In 16th-century Seville, the day after the burning of 100 heretics, a man appears inconspicuously and is immediately recognised by the crowds. He blesses them, and the sick are healed even as they touch his garments. He is arrested, and the old Grand Inquisitor comes to interrogate him in the prison cell.
"We have corrected your great work, and have based it on miracle, mystery and authority.
I shall burn you because you have come to meddle with us, for if anyone has ever deserved our fire, it is you."
Followed by an interlude
