a new piece by Jill Jarman for Dame Evelyn Glennie Chelys Consort of Viols Emily Atkinson (soprano) David Gould (countertenor) Steven Harrold (tenor) Robert Rice (baritone)
The ringing of bells has meant many things to people for centuries: the call to worship, a marking of time, an alarm for danger, the joy of marriage, the sorrow of death. Jill Jarman’s new piece for internationally renowned percussionist Evelyn Glennie with viols and voices mixes the sounds of old and new, life and death, celebration and mourning, and examines the call of bells pealing across centuries of human experience.
