London Concord Singers
Malcolm Cottle (conductor)

The Magnificat Antiphons for the last seven days of Advent, the Great O Anthems, have inspired composers over the centuries and London Concord Singers present a survey of the settings, each anthem set by a different composer. One anthem is sung to the original plainchant whilst another is in a setting by the 17th century English composer Robert Ramsey, the remaining settings are by contemporary composers from Estonia, Poland and the UK. Those of Arvo Pärt, Pavel Lukaszewski, Bob Chilcott and Keith Roberts are from taken from complete settings of all seven antiphons. Whilst that of Cecilia MacDowell, which was premiered earlier this year, is from a set commissioned from seven different composers by Merton College Choir. The Magnificat Antiphons will be complemented by a magnificent Magnificat by Andrea Gabrieli for three choirs.

The concert will be completed with a selection of music for Advent including the premiere of Robert Hugill’s advent motet Propre es tu.


Arvo Pärt : O Immanuel, from Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen
Pawel Lukaszewski : O Radix Jesse, from Antiphonae (O Antiphons)
Bob Chilcott : O Adonai, from Advent Antiphons
Keith Roberts : O Clavis David, from Veni
Cecilia McDowall : O Oriens
Robert Hugill : Propre es tu

Godfrey Reggio director

Britten Sinfonia
Philip Glass Ensemble
Trinity Laban Chamber Choir
Stephen Jackson choir director
Michael Reisman conductor

A live screening of Koyaanisqatsi the unforgettable 1982 film set to a new arrangement of Glass’ film score for his ensemble and orchestra.

Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 time-lapse cinematic vision of American cities and landscapes Koyaanisqatsi has been described as a ‘visual tone poem.’ In this wordless vision of nature and civilization is Reggio’s view of an ‘unbalanced world’, the collision of man with technology and the inadequate, humiliated state of language. As iconic as Reggio’s film is Glass’s score – momentous in its gradations of tempi, its seismically shifting harmonies and its seminal pitting of synthesized sounds against the weight of the orchestra. Here the Britten Sinfonia and the Philip Glass ensemble play the composer’s revised orchestration as a live accompaniment to the film.

Nonclassical & Freedom From Torture at Cafe Oto
Cafe Oto, London
22 Ashwin Street, London, E8 3DL
United Kingdom

Tickets: £8


This December we’re delighted to be forming part of ‘Freedom From Torture Presents’, a series of nights curated by independent labels and artists to raise awareness about victims of torture, their situations, and the work FFT is doing to help them recover from trauma.

The night features Gyorgy Kurtag‘s masterpiece, ‘Kafka Fragments‘ for soprano and violin, based on extracts from the author’s diaries, as well as six new works:

KATE WHITLEY: ‘Scars’ (text by Stephanie Ndoungo) a short opera for soprano and chamber ensemble
THOM ANDREWES: ‘MLR’ (text by Tim Malmo) soprano, speaker and trio
GREGOR RIDDELL: ‘Minding the gap’ (text by Amina Abdalla) for electronics two sopranos and cello
LAURENCE OSBORN: ‘A mind like the Northern Line’ (text by Amina Abdalla), for two sopranos, two double basses and percussion
JUDE CARLTON: ‘ Waiting’ (text by Noah), for tenor, piano and percussion
WILLIAM MARSEY: ‘I Do Not Belong Here’ (text by Ozgur), for baritone and two guitars

The new pieces have been commissioned specially for the event, setting and responding to texts written by torture survivors from Freedom from Torture’s creative writing group Write to Life. Write to Life provides clients with a creative outlet for their experiences and a way to explore the torture from their past and the difficulties of living in exile. It has evolved to be the longest-running writing group for torture survivors in the world.
