I am very proud to announce that I am currently taking part in a residency with South Iceland Chamber Choir. The outcome of this residency will be a piece for the choir to perform on the 15th November in Southwark Cathedral, London. The occasion of this concert will celebrate the composer John Tavener’s 70th birthday, and will feature a première of his ‘Three Shakespeare Sonnets’. I have been working very closely with Hilmar Örn Agnarsson, director of the choir (pictured above, middle), to experiment with different vocal techniques and their deployment throughout my piece.

I am preparing to visit London this Friday, 15th November, to hear the South Iceland Chamber Choir perform my new work ‘Islands’ in Southwark Cathedral. The concert will also include many pieces by Icelandic composers (a few of whom are pictured above). The finale of the concert will be a UK-premiere of Tavener’s ‘Three Shakespeare Sonnets’, which will be a truly beautiful experience indeed.
