Serenity

Responsories at Matins, Christmas Day

 
I perform regularly with the Choir at Easter and Christmas and recently performed Serenity by Ola Gjeilo as part of the BBC Carols from King’s broadcast. It was a memorable experience performing this deeply moving piece during the procession of the cross towards the altar. King’s College Chapel seemed to be the perfect place in which to realise Ola’s vision for the work—in his words: ‘I wanted to write a cappella music that has a symphonic, abundant feel. I love a warm, lush sound that can give a feeling of space and evocativeness, but still be intimate, somehow.’
