Lucis are delighted to welcome Will Todd to St Luke’s Church, Bath for a choral workshop of his music, featuring two of his more recent compositions, No More Sorrow and the Jazz Missa Brevis.
‘Will Todd’s music is valued for its melodic intensity and harmonic skill, often incorporating jazz colours, and his choral music is much in demand from amateur as well as professional performers.
His anthem, The Call of Wisdom, was performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations with a TV audience of 45 million people. His breakthrough work, Mass in Blue (originally titled Jazz Mass), has been performed hundreds of times all over the world and his arrangement of Amazing Grace was performed at President Obama’s Inauguration Day prayer service in 2013 and as part of the BBC’s Nelson Mandela Thanksgiving Service.
He has collaborated with award winning choirs The Sixteen and Tenebrae, as well as with the BBC Singers, BBC Concert Orchestra, The Halle Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, Opera Holland Park, Welsh National Opera, The Bach Choir, St Martin’s Voices and The Genesis Foundation.’
Ticket price includes music hire and refreshments.
Registration at 9.30am. Workshop will end at 17.00 (approx.)
