Following the release of our CD ‘The Lark in the Chapel’ last year, Mark Swinton and I will perform two recitals this spring which will feature music from it.
On Friday 19th May we will give a lunchtime concert in Derby Cathedral. The programme will include Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, voted the nation’s favourite for several years now in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame; the beautiful, airy nave will be the perfect setting for it. There will be an opportunity to purchase the recording at the end.
On Friday 2nd June, 1.15pm, we will perform in St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Warwick, where Mark is assistant director of music. Alongside works from the CD, this programme will feature the world premiere of ‘Scherzo Diabolique’ composed for us by David Briggs. It is an exciting and energetic piece which we are very much looking forward to performing.
Entry to both concerts is free, with a retiring collection.
