Premiere at St Mark’s Basilica, Venice

On 18th December, I will conduct the world premiere of my choral piece The Second Advent  at St Mark’s Basilica, Venice, as part of the Eton College Compline Choir’s tour to Italy. This is the second piece I have written for the Compline Choir, and I am thrilled to be working with them and music director Ed Yeo once again as part of my residency at Eton College. The piece is a new take on the famous advent carol “Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending”, with three separate groups of singers chanting tribally across the stunning space of St Mark’s.
