Music for an Autumn Evening

Music for an Autumn Evening
Daniel Collins will be best known to many people as a counter-tenor who has been singing with The Sixteen for 12 years. From 20 September 2018 he will also be wearing a different hat, as Daniel is the artistic director of Music for an Autumn Evening, a series of concerts at Holy Trinity Church, Stroud Green, N4 4EL. 

The concerts are on Thursdays starting 20 September and the series opens with an eight-voice vocal ensemble conducted by Daniel in Hubert Parry's glorious Songs of Farewell (a big feature of programming this year, the centenary of Parry's death), alongside English and Scottish music from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Further ahead, there is the Comali Consort in a programme which gives us a variety of 17th century portraits of women, including England's Virgin Queen, Dominika Fehér in solo violin music by Biber, Bach, Ysaye and Fehér, and the Bloomsbury Quartet in music by Britten, Beethoven and Schubert. A Winter series is promised too, so do check out the festival's website.

[Those of you with LONG memories will perhaps recognise Daniel Collins name from my 2008 disc, The Testament of Dr Cranmer]
