Newe Vialles began 2019 with an appearance in the On Your Doorstep concert series in Golders Green, London. We performed an intimate and reflective programme of French baroque music for the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day, featuring Viallers Henrik Persson, Caroline Ritchie, and Lynda Sayce. The concert was very well-received and the venue – Golders Green Unitarian Chapel – a delight to play in. Thank you to everyone there for hosting us and making us feel so welcome.
In May, Henrik and Caroline will be coaching viol-players of all ages and levels at the second South West Viols Fest, hosted by our friends at the Blackdowns Early Music Project in Culmstock, Devon. Feedback from last year’s event was excellent and there are still some places for this year’s course available! Details will go up here soon – for more information in the meantime, please contact the BEMP at the link above.
In August, we will return to Cambridge to record Gibbons verse anthems with Andrew Arthur and the choir of Trinity Hall. This is our second CD with Andrew and the choir, and we are really excited to collaborate on some of our favourite repertoire. Our first recording together, of Buxtehudes Membra Jesu Nostri, will be released this year.
Please follow back for more Newes, events and upcoming performances. Happy New Year!
