Programme Note

Seasoned session musician and saxophonist, Ian Close and film and TV composer, Dominic Beeton will be performing a full programme from their Sanctus Project. Ian has faithfully transcribed the vocal lines from early sacred music of the 12th and 13th Century and – supported by Dominic on pump organ, harmonium, shruti box and percussion instruments – has created an album called Sanctus. The result is a deeply spiritual and meditative experience whose natural home is the Cathedrals, Abbeys and Churches of Europe. Ian and Dominic have been touring with this album since January this year to critical acclaim.

In addition to playing music from their Sanctus album which has work from Hildegard, Adémar of Chabannes and Pérotin the Great, they will be showcasing new Hildegard material from Sanctus 2, and to welcome in advent, they will be performing traditional Christmas carols and tunes giving them the “Sanctus” treatment.
