Light and the Shadows Lengthen
St Andrew’s and St George’s West, Edinburgh
New Gospel Oratorio Passion Music by composer Will Todd featuring the mezzo-soprano Andrea Baker.
Passion Music is deeply inspired by Jazz and the Afro-American spiritual. In separate movements we find gospel quotations, hymn texts and Todd’s own poetry, all woven into an exploration of Easter-themed texts with the solo voice giving an emotional narrative throughout.
Atmospheric music by composers from both the Romantic and contemporary periods, including choral classics such as Rheinberger’s Abendlied, and music by the Scandinavian composers Edvard Grieg and Ola Gjeilo complete the programme.
Soloists – Andrea Baker, Caitlin McGillivray; Jazz ensemble; Jamie Lang – Piano; Directed by Brigitte Harris.
