This was followed by a filmed and live performance of Handel’s Samson with Harry Bicket and the English Concert for the London Handel Festival. Keep an eye out for the film being released. It had such a wonderful cast and it was an honour to sing in Handel’s Church, St George’s Hannover Square.
I then performed Bach’s B Minor Mass at the King’s Place. London, followed by another concert with the English Concert, this time, singing Purcell and Handel with Kristian Bezuidenhout at the Wigmore Hall. This was recorded for BBC Radio Three, so can be heard on the Iplayer App.
Later this Autumn, I will be singing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio at St Alban’s Cathedral, and several performances of Messiah in many cities across Europe and the UK. I will sing with AAM, Tenebrae, English Chamber Orchestra, BBC NOW, RNSO and Music of the Baroque in Chicago. Other venues include Snape Maltings, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Brauschweig, Winchester Cathedral and the Cadogan Hall.
I will also perform Paul McCreesh’s English version of Haydn’s Creation at York Minster in the Gabrieli Consort’s and Players “Re-Creation” project. This involves many children and local schools and choirs.
