Please help spread the word about the launch concert of my new Tenebrae CD of sacred music, “On Eagles’ Wings”. It’s on Thursday 7th April, at St James’, Spanish Place in London.
After a really exciting period of writing and becoming quite well-known for my community choral works (Zimbe, Ahoy et al), I wanted to find an outlet, a “home” for all of the sacred works I’ve been commissioned to write over the last decade or so; many have been recorded individually, but never on the same disc, and so it’s just wonderful that Tenebrae, who for me really are the best chamber choir in the business, have been able to record and launch this disc.
There’s also an opportunity that same day, 07-Apr-16, for keen amateur singers to do a workshop with conductor Nigel Short and me at St Martin-in-the Fields, followed by exclusive access to Tenebrae’s afternoon rehearsal, and then a ticket for the evening concert at the beautiful church of St James’, Spanish Place.
Places are limited and already filling up, so do apply soon! See –https://www.barbican.org.uk/eticketing/event-detail.asp…
John Rutter has already heard the disc, and said:
“One gorgeous piece after another, in pristine, dew-fresh performances by the ever-wonderful choir Tenebrae. Alexander L’Estrange is a many-sided composer of prodigious gifts, and this is an album I will return to again and again; I recommend it warmly to all lovers of choral music.”
…while Howard Goodall says, very flatteringly:
“Alexander L’Estrange could just be the perfect 21st-century musician”
I hope to see you there. Thank you.
