Duke Ellington's Sacred Works at York Minster

Paul Miles-Kingston (Director of Music at St Peter’s School) and the School’s Choirs and Choral Society are putting on the Duke Ellington Sacred Works in the Minster on Wednesday March 21 at 7pm, with the Stan Tracey Orchestra. This is a very unusual project indeed and represents a unique opportunity to hear these sacred pieces; we believe it has only been performed 5 times in the last 25 years in this country, and never by a school choir.

It is a wonderful opportunity to hear some incredible jazz musicians playing (many of whom also play in the BBC Jazz Orchestra) and to be present at a really spiritual event that will be highly memorable. Paul sang in a similar service at Durham Cathedral as a young choral scholar; 20 years later it remains an outstanding and lingering memory for him.

The works are performed in the framework of a full Eucharist and will be free and open to the public as a Minster service. It is anticipated that the Minster will have a full congregation (of around 1500 people).

There will be about 240 in the combined choirs of St Peter’s School, St Olave’s School and our Choral Society.

The Stan Tracey Orchestra is confirmed to include: Stan Tracey; Clark Tracey; Guy Barker; Mark Armstrong; Tom Walsh; Nathan Bray; Mark Nightingale; Alistair White; Pete North; Jay Craig; Simon Allen; Alan Barnes; Sammy Mayne; Mornington Lockett; Mike Smith; Andrew Cleyndert; Norma Winstone; Niall Hoskin; Junior Laniyan.
