Jam again

JAM are back with another concert of contemporary sacred choral music, entitled Body of Water, being given by the choir of Selwyn College Cambridge under conductor Nicholas Cleobury with Onyx Brass, on Thursday 22nd March at St. Bride's Church, Fleet Street.

The title of the concert comes from a work of the same name by Julian Philips (the composer in residence at Glyndebourne) and it is based on the experiences of one of the JAM Trustee's, as he swam across the Dardanelles last summer. This will be the work's premiere. Also receiving premieres are works by Richard Peat and Matthew Rowan both of which were submissions to JAM's recent Call for Music, their admirable scheme for allowing a voice to lesser known composers.

Rory Boyle's Tallis Light will be receiving its London' premiere, having been premiered on the recent JAM Scottish tour. Also featured in the programme are works by Paul Mealor and Phillip Cashian.
