Later this month NMC will release a BBC recording of Judith Weir’s The Vanishing Bridegroom which I recorded with the BBC Singers/BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Martyn Brabbins. Small solos were taken by the BBC Singers, including myself.
I was pleased to conduct and sing in the south of France last week in some beautiful and ancient churches full of atmosphere and history. Wolfson Chamber Singers sang their hearts out and the local audiences loved them and the English repertoire we performed. I also enjoyed singing Durufle’s Pie Jesu in his homeland.
Congratulations to King’s Junior Voices for its recent performance of Mahler’s 3rd Symphony with the Cambridge Philharmonic. Latest news is that we have received our first Cambridge Music Partnership grant in order for our older children to have a singing group of their own.
Do join us for our next concert on June 30th in King’s College Chapel.
Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to working on lots of new repertoire including Mahler 3rd Symphony (Chorus Mastering KJV for Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra), preparing a duet recital of Bel Canto arias & duets with soprano Philippa Boyle, and revising Boulez’s ‘Cummings ist der Dichter’ for 16 solo voices with the BBC Singers.
