written by Michelene Wandor and performed by the Siena Ensemble: Jennie Cassidy (alto); Susanna Pell (viola da gamba); Michelene Wandor (text / viola da gamba)
In 1290, the Jews were banished from England. From 1655 they once again became a part of British society, returning to the London of Oliver Cromwell, Samuel Pepys and Henry Purcell. The Music of the Prophets is an unusual entertainment, evoking mid-17th century London and featuring rarely heard music by John Hingeston, Oliver Cromwell’s Master of Musick. Michelene Wandor’s sensuous narrative poem entwines music by Gibbons, Lupo and Purcell.
In association with Arc Publications.
Le Hot Club de Hebden
Hebden Bridge’s very own Jazz Club for the fortnight!
Hebdens Restaurant, Hangingroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge
Late bar, free snacks and the best jazz for miles.
Featuring this evening:
The Ruby Wood, Dave Nelson Quartet
Ruby Wood (vocals); Dave Nelson (piano); Jenni Myhill-Molloy (acoustic bass); Chris Sykes (drums / percussion)
Still only 20 years old, Ruby Wood has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years, becoming a firm favourite in Hebden Bridge. This collaboration with the Tongue and Groove rhythm section brings out different aspects of Ruby’s impeccable style whilst losing nothing of the intimacy she creates with her audience.
