  • James Gilchrist tenor
  • Anna Tilbrook piano

James Gilchrist’s programme centres around the theme of loneliness and solitude. Four works look at our life when we stand alone, either through choice or circumstance. Exploring through words and music, how we came to be this way, what we hope to gain or fear to lose from it, what we might have to bear, and how we might know ourselves better through contemplation.
