For this rather special programme, we will be joined by internationally recognised cellist, Matthew Sharp (‘an extraordinary cellist – charismatic, virtuosic, brimming with verve and poetry.’ – The Times) to perform an evening of pieces composed specifically for choir and cello.
Pieces are all from within the last century and range from Arensky’s gentle, melodic Quartets to O’Regan’s exhilarating take on the traditional “Mag & Nunc” to Tavener’s solemn, moving Slavonic-inspired Svyati.
For more information about Matthew and the concert read Jess Griffin’s article here.
