Composer Julian Marshall

St Michael s Church, Framlingham

30th April 2016

Julian Marshall s long career as a songwriter and composer spans 70s pop stardom with the bands Marshall Hain, The Flying Lizards and Eye to Eye, through to work as a mature composer of classical forms, including the celebrated choral music publications Out of the Darkness (2009) and The Angel in the Forest (2012) written for some of today s top performers.

As co-founder, and creative director of, the London Song Company, as well as senior lecturer at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, Julian Marshall has nurtured his passion for teaching. However, composition takes a center-stage role in Julian s professional life. It is with great pleasure that he is bringing the new work Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing to St Michael s Church, Framlingham, on 30th April 2016.

And this tour celebrates his newly-signed contract with Novello Publishing.

Often inspired by great poets as a basis for his compositional narrative, this new piece features settings of William Blake s famous Songs of Innocence and Experience.

I had enormous fun writing these pieces, says Julian. Blake is a dream of a poet to set to music, as so many before me have discovered . From Vaughan Williams to Benjamin Britten, Blake s words have been popularly brought to life through music.

Blake s subject matter juxtaposes spiritual quest and romantic ideals with the harsh realities of life an insightful social comment which intrigues Julian.

Providing great scope for compositional exploration, Julian carefully selected fourteen poems and, transformed through sound, the settings feature a broad stylistic and expressive range, rather like you re in Kings College Chapel one minute and then in a kind of surreal Ronnie Scott s the next ! describes the composer.

The premiere performance in Suffolk is not only a wonderful opportunity for residents to experience top caliber music making in the comfort of their home town, but it is also hugely exciting to host the pre-eminent British tenor, James Gilchrist1, who will perform there for the first time.

I love working with Julian, expresses James, who has previously performed his work, his music speaks to people so directly and powerfully.

Dark Disputes and Artful Teasing is written for an intimate ensemble of eight unaccompanied singers, with tenor soloist. James Gilchrist will be joined in performance by Rubythroat, an exciting and innovative vocal group from Trinity Laban College of Music and Dance.

Under the baton of up-and-coming conductor, George Jackson, the performers wonderfully conjure atmospheres envisaged by Julian Marshall.

This promises to be a highly enjoyable evening of music, and you are advised to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

Tickets ( 8-16) are available for reservation and purchase online at [email protected]2, via telephone from 07967 134730 and in person through Leo s Deli box office, Market Hill, Framlingham.

Remaining tickets can be bought on the night (doors open 6.45pm, performance starts 7.30pm).

Profits will go to the charity Place 2 Be , who support young people with mental health issues a subject that resonates through the life and works of Blake.

Spooner Row Church Holy Trinity, undergoes urgent roof repairs …

Spooner Row Church Holy Trinity, Undergoes Urgent Roof Repairs ...

The tiny church of Holy Trinity in Spooner Row near Wymondham has just completed a major repair job to the roof. The work involved repairing the slates, flashings and parapet copings on the roof and clearing and redecorating the rainwater goods.

The problems came to light during a recent quinquennial inspection; this is a five year inspection undertaken by an experienced architect.

During the repair work, problems were found with the cross on the top of the east gable. Water had corroded the metal fastenings.

This in turn had split the stone. New sections were made by local stonemasons, and then the cross was reassembled.

The work cost around 27,000, a large sum for such a small church. However, the church was able to go ahead after receiving a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund.

This has been set up for urgent repairs to public places of worship across the UK that are formally designated as listed buildings. Peter Barnes Builders of Diss carried out the work.

Harry Gratton, the church s treasurer, is delighted with the results: Roof leaks can lead to all sorts of problems, so we are delighted that we were able to secure the funds so quickly , he said. And the builders have done a super job.

The roof should be good for a long time now.

Holy Trinity Church, built in 1842, serves a rural community and is well loved and used. It is a daughter church (i.e. serving the same parish) to Wymondham Abbey.

Two choirs practice in the church. The Norwich Music Group rehearses under their musical director Philip Aldred. A smaller choir, Dolce, provides fundraising activities in the church.

Both choirs assist other churches fundraising in Norfolk by giving concerts.

The village school uses the church for various services.
