The brilliant singers of EXAUDI perform music by North American pioneers and experimenters alongside the folk hymns which inspired them.
Cage creates a set of variations on an old hymn tune where the original material is not developed, but rather goes missing in different ways.
Cassandra Miller’s Guide is a glorious eight-voice smudge of a southern Baptist hymn, ‘Guide me, O thou great Jehovah’, sung in folk style.
In the light of the ongoing Coronavirus situation, it is with enormous sadness that we have to cancel the 2020 Aldeburgh Festival.
In these difficult times, our critical focus remains maintaining our vital work supporting artists and communities, and we rely on ticket sales and philanthropy to deliver the majority of this wide-ranging activity. We are living in uncertain times, but we know that music and the arts has the power to make positive change in people’s lives. When we emerge from this lockdown period, this mission will be more important than ever.
If you can, we’d be enormously grateful if you would make a donation to our vital work, which makes a deeply positive impact on thousands of lives every year. Together, we can combat the lasting impact of this virus by bringing the joy of music into people’s lives once again.
All of us at Snape Maltings thank you for your generous support during this uncertain time and wish you and those closest to you strength for the days to come.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Snape again soon.
