Event description
Continuum return to St Gabriel’s to perform a programme of Music for Remembrance culminating in Hubert Parry’s Songs of Farewell.

About this event

Continuum was founded in 2018 by Harry Guthrie aiming to represent the very best traditions of choral singing in the UK covering repertoire from the Renaissance to the present. The choir gave its first performance at St Gabriel’s, Pimlico in 2019 with a programme of Music for Epiphany. Since then, the choir has given concerts in London, Cambridge and the South-West ranging from Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday, to jazz arrangements as well as commissioning new works from young British composers Oliver Bowes and Harold Thalange.

The choir is delighted to be up and running again as the country gradually emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic. Upcoming projects in 2021-22 include Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols paired with Stuart Beer’s Advent Antiphons -written for Wells Cathedral Choir in 2017 - in December 2021 and G.F Handel’s Dixit Dominus alongside Bach’s Cantatas Christ lag in Todesbanden (BWV 4) and Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen (BWV 51) in March 2022. ———————————————————————————————————
