Magi

Tonight, my cantata the Magi will be receiving its premiere at London Concord Singers concert at the Grosvenor Chapel, South Audley Street, Mayfair, London at 7.30pm. The remainder of the programme includes music by Cecilia McDowell, Hieronymous Praetorius, Mendelssohn, Gesualdo, Nicholas Maw and Peter Philips. The new piece has proved popular with the singers so I can only hope that it is equally popular with the audience. The writing, for 8 part choir, uses quite a lot of bi-tonality which makes it tricky to sing but is proving very effective (well, at least I think so).
