Terrace Singers - Adiemus
The Terrace Singers is an all female group of passionate, talented choristers under the guidance of Margaret Lambert, the Musical Director. They are performing "Adiemus" a choral work by Sir Karl Jenkins, a Welsh composer.
"Adiemus" is a collection of song-length pieces featuring harmonised vocal melody against an orchestral background. There are no lyrics as such, instead the vocalists sing syllables and "words" invented by Jenkins. The language of "Adiemus" is carefully stylised so as not to distract the listeners' attention from the pitch and timbre of the voice. The core concept of "Adiemus" is that the voice should be allowed to function as nothing more than an instrument.
"Adiemus" involves 9 separate songs, performed over 1 hour, without an interval.
Proceeds from this performance will be used to support Wilderness in Nepal.
