And London Burned: in conversation with Raphaela Papadakis

Raphaela Papadakis seems to like ‘playing with fire’. After her acclaimed performance as the put-upon maid, Anna, in Independent Opera’s production of Šimon Voseček’s Beidermann and the Arsonists at Sadler’s Wells last year, she is currently rehearsing for the premiere this week of And London Burned, a new opera by Matt Rogers which has been commissioned by Temple Music Foundation to commemorate the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London.

The Sixteen/Christophers

Choral_Pilgrimage.gifRichard Morrison at St Albans Cathedral [Times Online, 7 March 2006]

Some much-fêted rock bands would be thrilled to pull crowds of a size that Harry Christophers and his choir, the Sixteen, are attracting on their “Choral Pilgrimage” through Britain. Between now and November they perform the same programme in 18 cathedrals, abbeys and concert halls. (Next up is the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, on March 28.) And to judge from their glorious concert in St Albans on Saturday, it will be one of the year’s more memorable musical events, not least because it is devoted to a towering genius whose work hardly registers on the radar of normal musical life — the 16th-century Spanish composer, choirmaster and priest, Tomás Luis de Victoria.
