26/2/13: University group revisits 2001 work for choir, organ and trumpet
This February, Cardiff University’s Contemporary Music Group, under the direction of Robert Fokkens, revisited Jonathan Pitkin’s The Holy Room - originally commissioned by the choir of St Marylebone Parish Church, London, in 2001 - as part of a programme of recent British music. This anthem, which is scored for mixed voices, organ and trumpet, interweaves two poems by John Donne and Henry Wotton, both of which bear the title ‘A hymn to my God in my sickness’.
