"Evening Hymn...a beguiling ballade, ravishingly sung and arranged by Ana Silvera"
- The Scotsman
I was invited by David McGuiness, director of the early music ensemble Concerto Caledonia, to a week long workshop, performance and recording at Aldeburgh back in March 2013. I was one of four singers selected, including Olivia Chaney, Jim Moray and legendary countertenor James Bowman. It was an amazing experience to work with such wonderful musicians and it culminated in a sold out concert in the Britten Studio, Snape Maltings. We even managed to produce a record that was released in 2015: Purcell’s Revenge (Delphian). The recording features two Purcell songs that I rearranged – Close Thine Eyes and Evening Hymn – and one original tune, Halos.
