Nature’s Voice – Online Broadcast – Vox Carnyx Review

Keith Bruce, Vox Carnyx

“If [Rowan Pierce] was the obvious star turn of the concert – just as assured in Handel’s ‘Hush, ye pretty warbling choir’, from Acis and Galatea, and the closing ‘Sweet Bird’, from L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato – there was quality everywhere in the ensemble.”

Nature’s Voice – Online Broadcast – The Times Review

Simon Thompson, The Times


“As much commitment as if the church had been packed to the rafters… One advantage of the expertly constructed video is that you get to see the players closer than in the flesh. Nowhere is that more engaging than with director John Butt, who works his magic from the keyboard, every gesture communicating love for the music and joy in the moment… Add soprano Rowan Pierce and you’ve got something pretty special. Pierce’s voice, simultaneously pure and rich, is one to lose yourself in.”

Nature’s Voice – at Lanternhouse cinema

This season we are artists in residence at Lanternhouse, Cumbernauld where we will present a programme of relaxed performances, open rehearsals, children’s events and classical music on the big screen.

Lanternhouse’s plush new cinema is the perfect place to enjoy Nature’s Voice, a specially commissioned filmed performance featuring soprano Rowan Pierce performing a beautiful programme of music inspired by nature. The programme includes excerpts from Vivaldi Four Seasons, Telemann Violin Concerto ‘The Frogs’ and Water Music, and arias for soprano and orchestra by Handel and Scarlatti.

John Butt will introduce the film and there will be an opportunity for Q&A at the end.
