Serenade to Music: 5th Anniversary Gala Concert

Apr 06 2019 19:00 - 21:00

Holy Trinity Church, Sloane St, SW1X 9BZ London

An evening of wine and song, celebrating five years of glorious music-making and fun!

Alongside a number of perennial favourites including Bruckner's Locus Iste and Gibbons' O Clap Your Hands, the programme will feature David Bednall’s setting of WB Yeats’s classic poem The Cloths of Heaven. See us singing it here:


Also by David Bednall we'll be performing the spectacular Lux Orta Est Iusto, scored for eight separate choirs in a total of 40 parts. Gramophone magazine described our recording as "a glittering explosion of sound that scatters its bright shards in all directions with wonderful abandon" and BBC Radio 3 as "a magnificent representation in sound of light ... extraordinary power".

A great influence on Bednall was Ralph Vaughan Williams, who set a portion of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, and called it Serenade to Music, from which this concert takes its title.

Serenade to Music was written for 16 voices - personal friends of the composer - each of them getting a solo. So as well as the uniquely rich blend of the Epiphoni Consort you'll hear at least 16 of their individual voices too!

Also featuring:

  • Mass for Double Choir (extracts) - Frank Martin
  • O Clap Your Hands - Orlando Gibbons
  • Song (I Gaze Upon You) - Gabriel Jackson
  • Le Cantique des Cantiques (final movement) - Daniel-Lesur
  • Stars - Esenvalds
