THE TELLING
Vision: The Imagined Testimony of Hildegard von Bingen
The Telling features Clare Norburn (soprano / director), Ariane Prussner (mezzo soprano), Leah Stuttard (harp) plus an actress to be confirmed. Lighting design is by Natalie Rowland and Pitch Black Lighting.This exciting multimedia experience of light, song, music and storytelling is an atmospheric candlelit show with an imagined narrative by the extraordinary Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179) as she looks back at her life, alongside performance of her mesmeric chant.

Watch a video:


The show gives an insight into the painful visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life
, covering some of the core emotional moments in her life.
It is “an imagined testimony” as Hildegard lies on her deathbed, revisiting and re-experiencing meaningful episodes from her past, including the moment when she was taken from her family at the age of 8 and when she made the decision at the age of 42 to finally talk about and write down her visions.

St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
SYRINX: BLAST FROM THE PAST
From the 14th to the 18th century
, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to recreate this impressive tradition playing bagpipes, shawms, dulcians, deutsche schalmei, baroque oboes and bassoon: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.
Syrinx received acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII.

From BAROQUE To ROCK
with Veronika Shoot (piano)

Veronika has an unusual and exciting programme featuring many great pieces of music and their relationship to each other throughout many centuries and genres.
In case you don’t know of her, Veronika has played as far afield as Russia and South America. In the UK, she has performed in concert venues such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, The Purcell Room and Dartington Hall where she plays regularly.
Veronika was acclaimed by Yehudi Menuhin at just 6 years old as destined to become a great pianist. Born in Russia, she moved to England aged 5 with her family. Her father, Vladislav Shoot, was composer-in-residence at Dartington Hall at the time and Veronika attended Dartington Primary School. She gave her debut piano recital aged seven.
