Ex Cathedra
Other info:

Shared Ground is a set of works by the British composer Alec Roth, featuring several poems and sung texts by the Indian writer Vikram Seth. The title piece of the same name is inspired by Seth’s poetry following a decision to buy and live in the Old Rectory in Bemerton - the former home of the 17thcentury poet and priest George Herbert. Other works on the disc expand this idea of a shared home or dwelling, with Earthrise - the reflections of Apollo astronauts on viewing the planet from orbit - and Hymn to Gaia.

To hear the interlocking version of Shared Ground and Ponticelli, programme the tracks in the following sequence: 1 - 7 - 2 - 8 - 3 - 9 - 4 - 0 - 5 - q - 6

Ex Cathedra, choir
From its home city of Birmingham, Ex Cathedra has established an international reputation as a leading UK choir and Early Music ensemble. It aims to explore, research and commission the finest choral music and to set the highest standards for excellence in performance and training. Ex Cathedra is known for its passion for seeking out the best, the unfamiliar and the unexpected in the choral repertoire, for its thorough research and for its dynamic performances. Founded by Jeffrey Skidmore in 1969, Ex Cathedra has grown into a unique musical resource, comprising specialist choir, vocal Consort, period-instrument orchestra and thriving education programme.

Ex Cathedra presents a series of concerts in Birmingham, where it is an Associate Artist at Town Hall, and is delighted to receive invitations to appear at festivals and concert series across the UK and abroad. Recent performances have included the Aldeburgh, Aranjuez, Canterbury, Chelsea, Chichester, Edinburgh International, Gregynog, Kilkenny, Lufthansa, Newbury Spring, Paisley, Santiago de Compostela, Salisbury, Stratford, St David’s and Three Choirs festivals.

The group has appeared in Champagne, Poissy, New York, Sagra Musicale Umbra (Perugia) and at the Royal Opera House.

Its education programme is central to Ex Cathedra’s mission. It has delivered its Singing Playgrounds project to over 180 schools across the UK, and to schools in Bangkok and New Zealand. There are plans to deliver Singing Playgrounds training in Guangzhou and Hong Kong in 2012. Singing Medicine has been delivered for over five years at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and recently started at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital. The group runs its own youth training choir, the Academy of Vocal Music (male and female singers aged 16 and above) and the Junior Academy of Vocal Music (boys and girls aged 7-16), trained by Rebecca Ledgard.
