Radiant Dawn

Thursday 12 October 2023

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Vocal consort The Gesualdo Six joins forces with trumpeter Matilda Lloyd to present a stunning programme that explores different sonorities and spatial relationships within our church.

Works from the Golden Age of polyphony by Tallis and White are juxtaposed with new compositions by Alec Roth and Donna McKevitt. Highlights include Sir James MacMillan’s ‘In splendoribus sanctorum’, a meditative and atmospheric setting from the composer’s ‘Strathclyde Motets’, alongside Richard Barnard’s Aura, co-commissioned by the artists.

Presented in partnership with Kings Place, as part of their Sound Unwrapped series.
