We are thrilled to be joined for this concert by Gabriel Waite, Cellist with the Royal Northern Sinfonia. Our theme is Serenity with a selection of beautiful pieces written for cello and voice creating a calm and serene mood in the magical acoustic of Js and Bs. The concert will include well-known works for cello and voice, 'Out of the Deep' from Rutter's Requiem, 'Benedictus' by Karl Jenkins and 'Svyati' by John Tavener alongside newer works including Ola Gjeilo's 'Serenity (0 Magnum Mysterium)', 'The Oak' by Becky McGlade and a piece written especially for this concert by Eleanor Cully Boehringer. We will also perform 'Hope is the Thing with Feathers' by Christopher Tin, from his Grammy-nominated 'The Lost Birds'. To complete our serene programme Gabriel Waite will play movements from cello suites by Bach, Britten and Saariaho including the sublime 'Prelude' from J S Bach's Cello Suite No.1 in G major.
