In keeping with our autumn theme, A song for all ships, all seas, the Trinity Laban String Ensemble programme follows an arc shaped journey, starting in the heavens with the late John Tavener’s Song of the Angel, featuring the sublime voice of Hilary Cronin, then onto the seas below with John Corigliano’s Voyage and Gavin Bryars’ deeply moving The Sinking of the Titanic.

James MacMillan’s A Meditation on Iona takes the audience back to dry land and the evening finishes with the singing angels of Aaron J Kernis’ Musica Celestis. The concert is framed by an electronic score created specially by students from our Composition Department, with lighting by Malcolm Richards.
