Better known to some as a baritone soloist, Roderick Williams’ reputation as a composer is growing steadily. His Advent antiphon O Adonai has become something of a favourite for choirs on both sides of the Atlantic and his Ave Verum Corpus Re-imagined was awarded the BASCA prize for Choral Composition in 2016. The commission scored for voice and orchestra, and featuring Roderick as soloist, features text taken from Chris Beckett’s poems about his upbringing in Ethiopia and will be a significant new work which Chineke! plans to tour in future jazz-inspired programmes.
