Candlemas comes round again

January 7, 2022

Opus Anglicanum‘s Candlemas promenade concert in Wells Cathedral will be rather different this year.

Saturday 22nd January

19:00 – 21:00

‘Adorna’: ethereal Gregorian plainchant for the feast of Candlemas meets with unique, spontaneous piano improvisations in this striking collaboration between Opus Anglicanum and jazz pianist Jason Rebello.

Candlemas is the winter day that all the Church’s candles for the year were blessed, and a festival of the first stirring of spring. In ‘Adorna’, the ancient monastic chants, as sung annually over the centuries in cathedrals and abbeys to mark Candlemas, blend with Jason’s piano – a magical new interpretation of light dispelling darkness.

Tickets are available here. My poem about the 2013 concert can be read here.
