Programme Note

When the first recording of  Mass in Blue was released in 2006, MusicWeb International ended its review thus: "Choral singers and directors on the lookout for enriching their choir's choice should get this, as should anyone who appreciates a well-themed piece of sung music that brings off the balance between accessibility and sustained creative delight." Premièred in 2003,  Mass in Blue, scored for soprano solo, choir, piano, bass and drum kit, has gone on to receive performances throughout the world.

Perhaps this will happen to  Two or Three Angels too? To complement the Mass, Highgate Choral Society has commissioned an exciting new work for soprano and double choir from "one of the brightest young talents to emerge in recent years", Russell Hepplewhite (Evening Standard Top 1000 most influential Londoners). Consisting of 12 movements,  Two or Three Angels sets to music poetry by William Blake, Rabindranath Tagore, Emily Dickinson, W B Yeats, Stephen Crane, James Henry Leigh Hunt, John Keats and Henry van Dyke. 1 July 2017 will be its first performance.

Pre-concert conversation with Russell Hepplewhite at 6.20pm.
