Prom Concert in London, UK: August 27, 2011 at 15:00

This Saturday I will be singing with Sinfonye at the Proms in London.

Sinfonye, Stevie Wishart‘s group, is taking part in the première of Stevie’s new piece, ‘Out of this World’. This piece was a BBC commission for the BBC Singers, conducted by Robert Hollingworth. It is based on Hildegard’s song-texts for which the original music has not survived.

“For Hildegard it seems music was a way for mortals to experience something of heavenly or spiritual ecstacy, and it is perhaps this desire which we can most clearly empathise with today.” – Stevie Wishart.

The full programme is :

  • Hildgard of Bingen – a selection of her chants from her Symphonia armonie celestium revelationum;
  • Benjamin Britten – Sacred and Profane;
  • Harrison Birtwhistle – Narration: A Description of the Passing of a Year;
  • Stevie Wishart – Out of this World: BBC Commission, World Premiere London Proms 2011.

Saturday 27th August | 3pm – 4:30 pm | Cadogan Hall, SW1
