St Paul's Sinfonia

Friday 18 January 7.30pm

St Alfege Church Greenwich

As regular audience members know, our January concert is traditionally given over to the virtuoso Sinfonia string section. We've got an ace first half for you, with works by Errollyn Wallen, Hannah Kendall and culminating in Malcolm Arnold's electrifying Symphony for Strings; and the second half contains just one work - the sublime classic that is Dvořák's Serenade for Strings. It's going to be a wonderful way to welcome in 2019 - it would be really lovely to see all of you there!

BBC Singers: Frances-Hoad and Bax, Singers at Six, 30 Nov 2018, 18:00, St Giles' Cripplegate

An Advent concert of seasonal British choral works by Arnold Bax and Cheryl Frances-Hoad anticipates Christmas joys to come.

Glowing with textural interest and intensity, as though lit from within, Frances-Hoad’s choral writing looks to the musical past for music that is very much of the present.  Her carols and motets take us from festive rejoicing, in the exuberant Gaude et Laetare , to rapt wonder in There is no Rose. Bax – Master of the King’s Music under George VI – also draws on the carol’s medieval origins in his graceful I Sing of A Maiden and This Worldes Joie.
