We are delighted to open our autumn season with the utterly sublime partnership of Grace Davidson and Christian Forshaw. Throughout Temple Music at Home, Grace and Christian shared a number of exquisite recordings with us, including a preview of the album they are launching at this concert - Historical Fiction. The programme features pieces from the album, which were selected for an imagined state occasion in a large and austere space – much like the Temple Church - arranged uniquely and beautifully for soprano, saxophone and organ but with a true reverence to the style, phrasing and expression with which the composers would have been familiar.

"Forshaw's sax takes on a soaring freedom that interjects the crystal soprano of Grace Davidson, creating something entirely original and honest"
