The Bible in Voice and Verse - A special concert of words and music

2011 is the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible. In addition to shaping the way we speak and providing a handbook for Christian worship it has also inspired vast amounts of music, in hymns, anthems, spirituals and oratorios.

Concert trio “In Voice and Verse” tell the story of Genesis to Revelation using the words of the King James Bible interspersed with the famous pieces of music which those words inspired. The music will include excerpts from Haydn's ‘Creation’, Handel's ‘Messiah’, Mendelssohn’s ‘Oh for the Wings of a Dove’ and several modern compositions.

Actor Lance Pierson is an experienced Bible performer, singer Belinda Yates is a member of the Monteverdi Choir and Heather Chamberlain is an accomplished pianist and teacher.
