Event description

Description

Following their recent tour to the Site Le Corbusier, near Lyon, the New London Chamber Choir (Musical Director: Matthew Hamilton) presents a programme of choral music chosen to take advantage of the extraordinary acoustic in Le Corbusier's Église St-Pierre there and the equally unusual surroundings of the Roof Studio at Siobhan Davies Dance in London.

The repertoire includes the angular modernism of Xenakis (who trained as an architect and worked with Le Corbusier on the Philips Pavilion at the 1958 World's Fair), the slow-moving meditations of his mentor Messien and disciple Dusapin, the soaring religiosity of Harvey and MacMillan, and the poignant earthiness of Britten during his last illness.

Programme

Jonathan Harvey: I Love the Lord
Iannis Xenakis: Serment
Pascal Dusapin: Umbrae mortis
Olivier Messiaen: O sacrum convivium
INTERVAL
James MacMillan: Alleluia
Iannis Xenakis: Nuits
Benjamin Britten: Sacred and Profane

Please note that the audience (and performers!) will be required to take off their shoes in the Studio.
