David is conducting this year’s High Sheriff’s Concert in 2019 and has been commissioned to write a work which will receive its premiere at the event. The piece, Every breath a song, sets words by the Benedictine Sister, Delores Dufner from Minnesota, USA. David will conduct a chorus of 170 voices made of singers from Bristol Outh Choir, Exultate Singers, and the Bristol-based gospel choir Renewal Choir. Together they will perform a new work by the composer Toby Young and librettist Jennifer Thorp, As One, which celebrates the history and diversity of Bristol. ¬†Exultate Singers will also perform Tallis’ iconic 40-part motet, Spem in alium.
