With The Gospel of Mary, the Icelandic composer Hugi Guðmundsson brings to life a long-forgotten gospel that challenges the established narrative surrounding the role of Mary Magdalene. It portrays her as an apostle of equal importance to her male counterparts, inviting us to listen to a voice that was silenced by history.
