UNION CHAPEL PRESENTS MARGINALISED
Four very special performances take place in the Union Chapel in support of the Margins Project, an in-house charity for people who are homeless or in crisis in London.
Mon 19 Oct: Gavin Bryars Ensemble
Gavin Bryars Ensemble – Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet and other works. Arctic Circle and Union Chapel are delighted that Gavin Bryars and his Ensemble will give his first London performance for over 15 years of Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet in its entirety. The piece was originally recorded on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975 and a substantially revised and extended version for Point Records in 1993 which included Tom Waits. Featuring a loop of the religious song Jesus Blood Never Failed Me Yet sung by a man living rough in London in 1971, this performance will be particularly poignant in its support of those that are homeless in the capital today. Bryars will perform with his full ensemble and will be joined by former group colleagues especially for this exclusive performance. The Gavin Bryars Ensemble featuring tenor John Potter who will perform a selection of his ongoing Lauda works to open the evening.

Thurs 22 Oct: The music of Vernon Elliot (a tribute to the world of Oliver Postgate)
Fri 23 Oct: Max Richter performing from From The Art of Mirrors
Sat 24 Oct: The Michael Nyman Band feat. David McAlmont
