Feel Good Festival: Choral Sanctuary with Christian Forshaw

Saturday, 2 March 2024, 7.30pm

A candlelit concert of beautiful choral voices celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Christian Forshaw's much lauded album 'Sanctuary'.

Christian Forshaw’s album Sanctuary - an exquisite exploration of sacred music, blending saxophone, organ and voice with original composition - has become a much-loved classical hit, regularly featuring on national radio. In our beautiful candlelit church venue, with its excellent acoustics and stunningly restored organ, we are honoured to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of this piece with Christian and his handpicked selection of choral voices.

Christian Forshaw's distinctive sound as a saxophonist & composer/arranger has attracted a global audience. His recordings have been streamed millions of times and have received much critical acclaim.

To date he has recorded six solo albums which receive regular airplay throughout the world. He was featured by Decca as composer, arranger & performer with Voces8 on the albums Eventide & Lux. More recently his writing and playing was featured on When Sleep Comes, a collaboration with Nigel Short and Tenebrae.

Forshaw's music has been heard in a number of film and television scores, including the 20th Century Studios blockbuster The Last Duel directed by Ridley Scott, and A Song For Jenny for the BBC.

Christian has performed and recorded with artists as diverse as Brian Eno, Damon Albarn, Moondog, Hugh Jackman, The Divine Comedy, Michael Nyman Band, BBC Singers & the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
