Wednesday, 20 October 2021

In this service the anthem - Ben Comeau's Vanity of Vanities - was commissioned for the college choir in 2016. Comeau graduated from Cambridge in 2014 and as a jazz pianist, he often writes music that makes use of the interplay between different disciplines of music. In 'Vanity of Vanities', Comeau plays with the interaction between organ, solo violin and men's voices choir. The choir was joined by violinist Alex Semple for this service.
