Stations of the Cross 2017

On Good Friday each year we walk with Jesus the Way of the Cross through a service in which we gather in front of each of the fourteen painting, hung around the church, to meditate on the unfolding events of Jesus’ trial and execution. These paintings – The Stations of The Cross, by Chris Gollon – have such depth and emotion about them that we have moved away from the traditional service, which is full of words, to standing and contemplating each one with a piece of music. This has become a mixture of recorded and live pieces, involving members of the church community,...

Tuesday 18 April, 7.30pm Tickets £16.90 “The arrangements of the songs on Impermanence, Brooklyn singer Peter Silberman’s first solo album, are so minimal and sparse that they make his exquisite recordings with his group The Antlers seem positively rococo. On intimate tracks such as Maya and Karuna, Silberman’s croon is accompanied by nothing more than the occasional strum of a guitar. His multi-octave voice is as intense as Jeff Buckley’s or Anohni’s, but it’s vulnerable without being precious or cloying. The dusty ambience is that of 1930s folk and blues recordings – an...

HOLLY MACVE, Thursday 6 April, 2017, 7.30pm

Bella Union have recently signed the exciting talent of Holly Macve. Boss Simon Raymonde says “Little is known of Holly other than she is a 21 year old from Yorkshire who appeared out of nowhere in Brighton late last year. I had a tip-off to go to a basement bar where she was playing. In a room full of beery boys chatting across all the music beforehand, the minute Holly opened her mouth the room fell silent. Hers is a rare gift.” A heavenly voice couched in spellbinding country & western ballads, with a devastating emotional delivery: Holly Macve is a fantastic addition to the Bella...
