ACCLAIMED international composer Karl Jenkins is accompanying St Albans Chamber Choir in a performance of one of his latest works next Saturday, July 4.
The choir is putting on A Parliament of Owls which Mr Jenkins set to words by his wife Carol Barrett, herself a prominent composer.
The piece explores the many collective nouns associated with birds and animals and is the centrepiece of an unusual programme of music inspired by the natural world.
The concert, which starts at 7.30pm, is being held in St Peter's Church, St Albans, and the animal theme will continue with Orlando Gibbons' madrigal, The Silver Swan, and the humorous Sweet Suffolk Owl and All Creatures Now.
