Exeter University Chapel Choir: Director & Singers join Classical Journey on Phonic FM Tuesday 20 January 2015

Exeter University Chapel Choir
Director: Michael Graham
Sopranos: Jess Brown & Kitty Bishop
Bass: Simon Clark

This Tuesday Phonic FM welcomed Exeter Cathedral choral scholar, Michael Graham, and three university students to the studio to discuss their work with the University of Exeter Chapel Choir during the "Classical Journey". (A recording of the programme is available via "MixCloud".)

Since coming to Exeter as a scholar, Michael has sung in the Cathedral choir, the Buckfast Abbey Choir, Matt Cann's "Antiphon" choir and directed his own choir "Exodus".

In 2012, Jess Brown was just starting her studies for a masters degree in astrophysics. She also had a music scholarship, and re-animated the Chapel Choir at the University to bring together other students to sing in services and concerts. Michael was the natural choice to direct the choir.

Many students with music scholarships have since joined the choir. Last year PhD student Simon Clark (atmospheric physics) joined as a bass. One of the more recent additions is Kitty Bishop, who began her undergraduate studies in German and Spanish last September. The choir now has twenty members - five sopranos, five altos, five tenors and five basses.

The choir sing evensong, accompanied by Buckfast Abbey Organ Scholar Phillip Broadhouse, at 5pm every Wednesday in the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel on the Streatham Campus (next to Roborough Studios). For Ash Wednesday (18 February) Michael and the Choir are preparing Gregorio Allegri's 1630 setting of "Miserere Mei, Deus" (Have mercy on me, o God) and the "Missa Papae Marcelli" by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, composed for Pope Marcellus II in 1562.

(Last year's performance of the Allegri at Exeter Cathedral was particularly memorable, with Andrew Millington playing the organ, and Jess and Simon singing in those exquisite solo sections.)

The Chapel Choir also sing for a Sunday morning service at the Chapel every alternate week. The next Sunday service at Mary Harris Chapel will be on Sunday 1 February. (On the intervening Sundays, Michael can be heard singing in the Exeter Cathedral Choir.) The Choir will also sing evensong in the Chapel at 6pm on Sunday 1 February in a special service for Candlemass.

Last year for Candlemass, the Chapel Choir performed Gustav Holst's "Nunc Dimittis" (Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine: Now you dismiss your servant, o Lord), composed for Compline at Westminster Abbey in 1915, and the "Missa in Tempore Pascali" (Easter Mass) composed for the Choir of Guildford Cathedral by their Director of Music, Philip Moore, in 1979. (The current Director of Music at Exeter Cathedral, Andrew Millington, took over from Philip Moore at Guildford in 1983.)

This year Candlemass will be celebrated in the Mary Harris Chapel with the Choir singing very modern sacred music. Jonathan Dove's "Missa Brevis" (Short Mass) was commissioned for the Cathedral Organists' Association in 2009, while Paweł Łukaszewski's version of "Nunc Dimittis" was composed in 2007 - for the conductor of the Holst Singers, Stephen Layton.

On the second Sunday of each month the Chapel Choir sing in a Holy Ground Service at the Cathedral, led by the Canon Chancellor, Anna Norman-Walker. The next Holy Ground Service will be on Sunday 8 February. The service (Holy Communion) is at 7pm, followed by a talk by a guest speaker in the Chapter House at 8pm.

On the "Classical Journey"  we listened to some recordings of the Choir at past events.

Simon Clark introduced the Choir's performance of Anton Bruchner's 1861 setting of the offertorium prayer "Ave Maria",  performed during their last year's tour - of Topsham (St Margaret's Church), Bristol (The Lord Mayor's Chapel, College Green) and Bath (YMCA & Bath Abbey).

Jess Brown introduced an English translation of "Magnificat" (Magnificat anima mea Dominum: My Soul doth magnify the Lord) from Philip Stopford's 'Evening Canticles' written for the Choir of St Anne's Cathedral Belfast, when he was their Musical Director (2003-2010).

Michael Graham introduced a 30 second extract from another version of the "Magnificat" - which can be heard on the University Chapel Choir Website - or by searching 'YouTube'. It forms part of Charles Villiers Stanford's 'Evening Service in A' which was commissioned in 1880 by John Stainer, organist at St Paul's Cathedral, for the annual Festival of  the Sons of the Clergy.

The Chapel Choir will perform the Stanford Magnificat at Exeter Cathedral as part of a special evensong for the Exeter & District Organists' Association at 5pm on Tuesday 17 February - to demonstrate the newly refurbished 1665 John Loosemoore organ (brought up to specification, once again, by Harrison & Harrison in Durham) - and the great choirs of Exeter.

At the Organists' Association evensong, the Chapel Choir will also sing another choral work by Charles Villiers Stanford - "For lo, I raise up" [ . . . that bitter and hasty nation ] composed in 1914 and based on the words of the Book of Habakkuk in Hebrew Scripture - as a response to the impending horror of war.

Simon Clark reminded us of the stunning performance of George Friderick Handel's 1741 oratorio "Messiah" by the Chapel Choir at the Mary Harris Chapel on St Cecilia's Day (Saturday 22 November) accompanied by Fiona McLean-Buechel's 'South West Camera' string orchestra, Laurence Blyth playing harpsichord, Abi Ellison playing tympani and Claude Lamon playing piccolo trumpet.

The concert was repeated on Monday 8 December at St James's Church in Exeter with Matt Cann playing harpsichord. Fiona McLean Buechel was joined by Joel Munday and Flora Farquharson from Camerata (first & second violin & viola) and Edward Woodhouse and Melanie Lester played 'cello and double bass respectively - not forgetting Claude Lamon, who returned with his trumpet.

Simon, Kitty and Jess all had solo parts to sing in the oratorio, Simon sang "For behold, darkness shall cover the Earth", Kitty sang "But who may abide the day of his coming?" and Jess was joined by Chloe Price and Emily Cobb for the recitatives from the Luke Gospel regarding the shepherds in the fields - ending with Jess singing, " . . . And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host . . . " - a spectacular twenty seconds' worth.

Kitty Bishop introduced a recording of the Chapel Choir at Mary Harris Chapel on 22 November singing a chorus from the "Messiah" - the words of the Book of Malachi, describing the Hebrew God as refining humanity like precious metals, "And He shall purify the sons of Levi".

Kitty also introduced a very different recording, made during  their visit to the Lord Mayor's Chapel in Bristol last year. Pretty, gentle, quiet and therapeutic -  "O nata lux de lumine" (O light born of light) from Morten Lauridsen's "Lux Aeterna" (Eternal Light).

After a brief reminder from Michael about all the musical events involving the Chapel Choir which are coming up in February and March (see below), there was a unanimous vote for a further recording from the St Cecilia's Day concert at Mary Harris: Handel's setting of the words of St John the Divine, in the Book of Revelation - "Hallelujah! For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth."

EMG Symphony Orchestra’s Chair, Rachel Wieck, with trumpeter Tony Hindley, Britten narrator Alistair Ganley and oboist Kate Osborne, presents Jordan Anderton of Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) with a cheque for £500 following the Orchestra’s November concert at the Great Hall. 

EMGSO is delighted to be able to make this additional donation to ELF, thanks to strong ticket sales for the November concert.  This donation, combined with the bucket collection taken by the charity at the end of the concert brings the total raised for ELF from this event to over £1,000.  EMGSO Chair Rachel Wieck said “EMG is delighted that the ticket sales for this concert have enabled us to contribute additional funds to such a worthwhile local charity.  We hope that ticket sales for our forthcoming concerts will enable us to make similar donations to our partner charities in the future”.

Appassionata! Alex Knight & Suki Trussler together Third & Final Guitar & Flute Duo Recital for 2014 at Tati Dennehy's 'Jellyfish' Exhibition Buckfastleigh Tuesday 23 December 2014

Alex Knight & Suki Trussler
Appassionata Duo - Guitarist & Flautist

Nathilde Overrein Rapp
Norwegian Film Director

Founder of Jellyfish Productions

Jellyfish Studio
In September 2012 a new musical duo appeared in concert in Budleigh and Sheldon. Alex Knight and Suki Trussler put on a two concerts of guitar and flute duets which were very popular. Then came the sad news. Suki and her husband Nick were already committed to a long term project in Berlin, founding a new music school.

Now, two years later, the project is complete and Suki and Ian are back in England - living in Buckfastleigh. Suki has returned and rehearsals with Alex, who lives in Totnes. Their repertoire now includes many additional baroque and romantic duets.

Nick, it just so happens, is a recording engineer in addition to his many teaching and management qualifications. He makes many recordings for his education company "Solutions4Content". It was a simple matter for Nick to get together with Alex and Suki at the end of last year to create their first album of music.

Beautiful Artwork by Tati Dennehy
To hear clips, or order a copy of any of Alex or Suki's albums, there is a Website for "Alex Knight & Suki Trussler", and a new "Appassionata Duo" website under construction.

The duo's first return concert was at St Edmund's, Kingsbridge, on Friday 19 December, and repeated at St Marychurch, Torquay, on Saturday 20 December.

St Marychurch Church has an impressive acoustic, particularly suited to their music, and it is a pity the concert was not recorded. The seasonal pressures meant many people missed both concerts and everyone hoped there might be one more chance to hear the duo.

Room for one more . . .
The good news was that Suki had made a new friend in Buckfastleigh - and another chance to play for her very appreciative fans.

Next the Buckfastleigh Town Hall, a single room has been taken over by Norwegian film producer Nathilde Overrein Rapp. The small space is filled with sculptures and paintings by local artists and open to the public 12-6pm Tuesday-Friday and 4-8pm on Saturdays. A plaque and metal sculpture at the gate let you know you've arrived - at "Jellyfish Productions".

Inside there is enough space for an audience of about fifty people, and on the evening of Tuesday 23 December the hall was packed. Nathilde's publicity in Buckfastleigh had brought in many fans, and there was standing room only for the late arrivals.

In the intimate space, guests crowded round to share Nathilde's food and drink and to admire the many artworks on display in the studio. Despite the crush, not one table was nudged nor any sculpture dislodged.

Suki plays alto flute under Tati's Christmas fairy
With everyone in place, some sitting on a bed, some among the coats at the door, Alex and Suki began with Vivaldi's Concerto in D. After one movement Suki had to admit that, far from being cold on that dark December night, the room was becoming over-warm from the press of people. All heating had to switched off and the doors opened. Everyone basked in the natural warmth of companionship and beautiful music.

Two more movements of Vivaldi gave way to Bach's "Sicilliana", and Handel's "Harmonious Blacksmith". From baroque, the duo then leapt forward to the romantic music of the nineteenth century. Two Spanish pieces by Isaac Albeniz and Enrique Granados ("Tango" and "Playera") were followed by French music by Gabriel Fauré and Jacques Ibert ("Pavane" and "Entr'Acte") separated by a special arrangement by Suki for alto flute of Christopher Gunning's theme tune for the ITV series "Agatha Christie's Poirot".

Alex plays the lute music of Robert Johnson
The Entr'Acte led naturally to an interval with more food and drink, and many positive comments about the music. After the break we were back at the beginning of the seventeenth century with Robert Johnson's "Alman" for lute, played very deftly by Alex on a modern Spanish guitar. The baroque mood continued with Domenico Scarlatti's "Flute Sonata in A", and Johann Sebastian Bach's "Prelude in C" arranged for guitar - with Charles Gounod's additional words to the "Ave Maria" sung by Suki on her flute.

In an echo of the Bach Sicilliana, the duo played Fauré's "Sicilienne" and three new compositions. "Peacock's Parade" by Totnes guitarist Chris Glassfield, followed by "Back to the Sea" and a variation on Canadian composer François Dompierre's "Tango", both by Suki herself.

Appassionata Duo
Having got the audience in the mood for tango, the duo finished with the greatest tango of all - by the king of tango himself, Argentine bandoneon master Ástor Piazzolla - his 1974 radio commission "Libertango".

Everyone was left wanting more - and hugely impressed by the extensive exhibition of art in the beautiful studio. Congratulations to Alex Knight and Suki Trussler for such spectacular music, and to Nathilde Overrein Rapp for her sensational displays of art.

There will be more "Appassionata" concerts in the spring of 2015, and "Jellyfish Productions" looks favourite as one of the venues. Any details will go straight to the "Classical Journey Concerts" blog.

Meanwhile on the "Redux Classical Journey", broadcast on Soundart Radio this Sunday, 18 January, 3-6pm, there is a chance to hear some of the fabulous music that thrilled that Buckfastleigh audience at the Jellyfish studio at Christmas. Soundart broadcasts on 102.5FM to the South Hams of Devon and can be heard by live stream by opening the Soundart Radio Website - or going directly to the Soundart Radio Player.

There will be more "Appassionata" on the regular "Classical Journey" on Phonic FM in Exeter on Tuesday 20 January 10-12am (a special programme concentrating on Exeter University Chapel Choir). 106.8FM in Exeter and online via the Phonic FM Website or Phonic FM Player.

Alex West Returns for a Piano and Organ Ricital Glenorchy Lunchtime Concert Spring Series Wednesday 14 January 2015

Alex West

Alex West is a familiar figure to music lovers in Exeter. He is choirmaster at St Michaels Church, Mount Dinham, and now takes responsible for "Music@StMichaels", a series of Wenesday evening concerts, held roughly once a month at the eponymous church in the St David's Hill area of Exeter.

As well as his mathematical modelling research with the Meteriological Office, Alex is also a piano and organ scholar. His first appearance at Glenorchy, to demonstrate the piano and organ works of nineteenth century Parisian composers, was an unforgettable event. (See "Classical Journey" 27 Apr 2011.)

In addition to his own series of concerts (including many organ recitals on the newly refurbished organ at St Michael's Church) Alex still takes time to entertain us at Glenorchy. This Wednesday he played 45 minutes of delightful baroque and classical music.

His opening piece on piano was Johann Sebastian Bach's 'Toccata No 4', a delighful piece, originally for harpsichord, in four movements. The opening presto was deceptively short, but led to a restful allegro and adagio, and a playful closing fugue.

On the organ Alex went back to Bach's inspiration and mentor, the Danish composer Dietrich Buxtehude. His "Praeludium in A" ran seamlessly into more fabulous baroque music, this time from France - François Couperin's "Mass for the Convents" - selecting just six from the monumental 21 movements.

The opening was the first and second of the five movements intended to intersperse the Kyrie Eleison, "Plein Jeu" and "Fugue sur la Trompette" (using the wonderful trumpet sound of the Bevington organ). Then came the seventh and eighth of the nine movements of the Gloria, "Trio" and "Recit de Tierce". The extended "Dialogue sur les Grands Jeux" was intended to accompany the Offertoire - and allow sufficient time for the congregation to give generously. Finally Alex played the closing "Deo Gratis".

Having impressed us with his skill and delicacy on the organ, Alex concluded the concert with an entertaining piece of classical music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Sonata no 13 is scored like a concerto, but with the orchestral music played by the pianist as well. The cadenza in the final allegretto grazioso gives way to - more spectacular playing by Alex himself.

A lovely concert.

To hear the live recording, tune in to Soundart Radio on Sunday 18 January at 3pm. Soundart transmits on 102.5 FM to the South Hams of Devon - but can be heard live on line, anywhere in the world, by opening the Soundart Radio Website, or going straight to the Soundart Radio Player.

Glenorchy & St Michaels concerts continue throughout the spring of 2015.
