One for the chop? 12 March 2011, All Saints London Colney

This was the original idea behind the early music programme Intimations of Mortality. In all the pieces chosen, either the words or the music were composed in the face of imminent death or in the hope of eternal life, but far from making for a miserable evening, the resultant music is sublime, for these works were written in the 16th and 17th centuries in a time of great religious faith. This is a rare opportunity to hear some spectacular pieces, large in scale both in the number of voices and in length compared to most works of this period.

The Chapel of the Pastoral Centre at London Colney will provide a sumptuous acoustic for this programme, and with the Centre due to close at the end of this year, this may be one of the last opportunities to enjoy such ethereally beautiful music in this special venue.
