Sospiri are performing as part of the Passiontide at Merton festival on Saturday 31 March, 2012. Now in its third year, the festival runs over the entire weekend, with Sospiri giving a late-evening concert on Saturday night in the college chapel at 9.30 p.m. The programme will feature music from Desolata est, the forthcoming Sospiri CD of Lamentations, including UK premieres of new work by Cecilia McDowall and John Duggan, which were specially commissioned for the CD.
Tickets for the concert can be bought from the Oxford Playhouse (Tickets Oxford) and there is also the option to purchase a Festival Ticket and be resident in the College for the weekend. For Festival Tickets please email Rachel Fright or ring 01865 616724.
