Crouch End Festival Chorus
David Temple: Conductor

Crouch End Festival Chorus marks its return to the live concert hall with a thrilling mixture of big band jazz and works for unaccompanied choir.  The main work is by the legendary jazz composer and performer  Duke Ellington – his Sacred Concert , originally written for performance in the new Grace Cathedral in the US in 1965. Ellington went on to write a series of these and tonight CEFC performs the version arranged by John Høybye and Peder Pedersen, scored  for soprano solo, choir and big band.

Preceding this are works by Eric Whitacre, Philip Glass, Morten Lauridsen and Lillie Harris for a cappella choir.
