This cantata is all about healing and enlightenment, reflecting on humanity’s salvation by God’s grace alone. The dramatic weight of this music is emphasised by the voice of Christ in three sermon-like solos, performed by Rising Star bass Dominic Sedgwick.
‘Voice Doctor’ Declan Costello shares with us the mysterious world of vocal anatomy. He will discuss the findings of Public Health England’s study into the transmission of viral particles by singers and musicians. Brace yourself for some up close and personal pictures of vocal cords, too!
