Opus Anglicanum with Jason Rebello
Fri 24 March 19:30 - 20:55
Jazz star Jason Rebello meets classical a cappella experts Opus Anglicanum in a striking collaboration. Sublime, ancient Gregorian chant for the midwinter feast of Candlemas comes to new life when the spontaneous improvised piano of Jason Rebello joins the mix.
Candlemas is the winter day that all the Church’s candles for the year were blessed, and a festival of the first stirring of spring. In this concert, the ancient monastic chants, as sung annually over the centuries in cathedrals and abbeys to mark Candlemas, blend with Jason’s piano – a magical new interpretation of light dispelling darkness.
Duration 85 minutes, without interval.
