Christ Church Cathedral’s 2015 winter lunchtime recital series presents a song recital SPEAKE, MUSIC! Melodies for the Cradle by soprano Nancy Washeim and pianist Jane Edler-Davis.

Vancouver Island audiences have been attracted to performances by the two since Nancy’s move to Sooke over a decade ago. Their remarkable musical collaborations began with mutual love of early music, but soon expanded to include all art song. Their theme for this Friday lunchtime concert was inspired by anticipation about, and the birth of Jane’s grandson. This led them to compositions by Elgar, Haydn, Schubert, Wolff, Vivaldi and more! The happy result – a captivating musical journey beyond lullabies to explore sleep, dreams, prayer, and diversions leading to sleep. As a delightful bonus, Nancy’s 10-year-old son, treble Andrew Washeim will join his mother in two duets and a solo of his own.

Nancy’s recent performances include Bach’s St. John Passion with the Vancouver Handel Society and Haydn’s Cantilena Pro Adventu with the Sooke Philharmonic  Orchestra and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Okanagan Festival Singers.

Christ Church Cathedral is located at 930 Burdett Avenue at Quadra and Rockland.
