The Language of Bells

1 November, 2023 at 19:30 - 20:45


The ringing of bells has meant many things to people for centuries: the call to worship, a marking of time, an alarm for danger, the joy of marriage, the sorrow of death.

Composer Jill Jarman’s new piece for internationally renowned percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie with viols and voices mixes the sounds of old and new, life and death, celebration and mourning, and examines the call of bells pealing across the centuries of human experience.

Dame Evelyn Glennie – percussion
Chelys Consort of Viols
Emily Atkinson – soprano
David Gould – countertenor
Steven Harrold – tenor
Robert Rice  – baritone

The performance will last for 70 minutes with no interval. Seating allocation is unreserved, please email separately for any ​access requirements.

The Language Of Bells is grateful for the support of Arts Council England, The Golsoncott Foundation, RVW Trust, GEMMA classical music trust, PRS Foundation and Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
