Selected Performances

Open my eyes to meet your gaze

St Martin in the Fields

Requiem Fragments: The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin present a concert of reflective music to mark the end of the season of Remembrance. At the heart of the programme is John Tavener’s Requiem Fragments, a sequence of short movements which alternate scoring and spiritual references. It is paired with other works by Tavener – his Song for Athene, a BBC commission for the BBC Singers, arguably made famous by its inclusion in the funeral service of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Seascapes

The Stoller Hall, Manchester, M3 1DA

Behold the Sea: ‘We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.’

Kantos delves into the might and majesty of the deep blue sea, exploring its depths, unravelling its mysteries and succumbing to its power.

We share traditional stories from the high waters with folksong and sea shanties as well as tragic tales of coastal communities where lives are lost at sea. The concert features George Herbert playing Benjamin Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, transcribed for organ by Anna Lapwood, and interspersed with Kristina Arakelyan’s Seascapes for choir.
