Leading up to the group’s third Summer Tour, Classical Events interviewed Owain covering everything from the early days to our most memorable performances. Read the full interview here.
Interviewer: What are your most memorable performances?
Owain: Performing Arvo Pärt’s ‘Passio’ with the composer in attendance will live long in the memory, as will our first concert in Germany, which was standing-room only – a surprise to us given as the concert kicked off at 10.30pm! We really enjoy bringing our music to rural venues in the U.K. and have sung in some beautiful places, including Clodock and Dore Abbey on our first two Summer Tours. Singing Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in King’s College Chapel and performing Italian Madrigals in a room full of paintings by Caravaggio in the National Gallery are two of my personal favourites, but I also can’t forget the numerous cricket matches we’ve managed to play – that really is something the group can always agree on!
