Words & Music - "Sudden Light" CD Launch Concert - David Bednall
Fri, June 9, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM BST
Marking the release of our debut CD — Sudden Light: choral works by David Bednall – a launch event of music and readings, together with a drinks reception for friends and supporters of the choir who helped make it happen.
Recorded in autumn 2016, Sudden Light will be released 21 July 2017 on Delphian Records.
The disc includes the 40-part motet ‘Lux orta est iusto’ which was written in 2015 as a partner to Tallis ‘Spem in Alium’, and performed by Epiphoni at St Martin-in-the-Fields in April.
Other premiere recordings include the ‘Three Songs of Love’ with poetry by Yeats, McCrae and Clare.
Texts by Sassoon and Shakespeare complete a programme of largely non-religious texts.
