Video coming soon: Ferio Saxophone Quartet collaborates with Corvus Consort to perform Bach

The Ferio Saxophone Quartet’s latest project is a collaboration with vocal ensemble the Corvus Consort (formerly the New Oxford Consort), with a video coming soon, featuring music by J. S. Bach.

The video, recorded and produced during the lockdown, will be premiered as part of The Sixteen‘s Sounds Sublime Festival, which this year takes place online.

Scattered across the UK, the saxophonists and singers have recorded Bach’s accompanied chorale ‘Jesus bleibet meine Freude’, from BWV 147, a chorale more commonly known in its English version: ‘Jesu, joy of man’s desiring’.

We will update this news item as soon as the video is available to view, or you can look out for The Sixteen’s ‘Sounds Sublime’ Festival on Saturday 18th July, which showcases some of the UK’s brightest young vocal talent.

This collaboration has grown out of the Ferios’ 2018 disc ‘Revive’ which featured a selection of Baroque instrumental works transcribed and arranged for saxophone quartet.

The Quartet hopes to work this collaboration into a full length concert of Baroque choral and instrumental music with the Corvus Consort, once it is possible to perform together again.
