Symphonic Highlights from the Gospel According to Mark is a selection of some of the most poignant moments from the unique seven-hour oratorio by multi-award-winning Canadian composer Christopher Tyler Nickel.

Set without voices, the Symphonic Highlight’s 12 movements preserve the oratorios musical motifs and themes of teaching, healing, miracles, forgiveness, death and resurrection, outlining the story of the Gospel solely through the power of melody and harmony, and the purity of instrumental colour.
