  • #throwback to our performance of @jobytalbot’s 'Path of Miracles' at St Bartholomew-the-Great in July 2017..St Bart's was to be the venue for the premiere of this mind-blowing work way back in 2005, but the concert was cancelled under tragic circumstances in the wake of the London bombings on 7 July. Sadly, this year we have also had to postpone its 15th anniversary performance. In between times, however, we have toured it all over the world, and we know that many of you have been deeply moved by its power and beauty..If you missed Nigel and Joby's conversation on Facebook Live last night you can watch it now on our Facebook page, and head to the link in our bio to see an extract from our performance in Paris in 2018..📸 Kathleen Holman
