Holy Trinity, Sloane Square
Illuminare choir continues its series of concerts in Holy Trinity, Sloane Square, with a unique and unmissable programme. Providing the centrepiece to the programme is Duruflé’s Requiem setting based on ancient plainsong melodies which is accompanied by renowned organist Peter Holder, Sub-Organist at St Paul’s Cathedral, on the magnificent instrument in Holy Trinity.
The concert also features the world premiere of Barnaby Martin’s The Temptations of Christ, which was commissioned by Illuminare choir. This dramatic piece sets text from Milton’s Paradise Regained and brings together soloists, two choirs, tubular bells and organ in what promises to be an exciting and inspiring first performance. We are delighted to welcome guest conductor Christopher Stark, Artistic Director of Multi-Story, to direct the piece. Christopher has recently won an RPS award for his work with the Multi-Story orchestra.
This concert has been kindly supported by St Paul’s School.
