Rebecca Hewes, Cello, and Julian Collings, Organ are the Svyati Duo, first formed when the two were performing John Tavener’s Svyati for choir and cello solo. In a program of 19th- and 20th-century works, they adventurously explore textures and literature for their instruments in a sympathetic and well-recorded acoustic.
The organ heard here dates from the early part of the nineteenth century and has been moved and rebuilt several times. It presently has 29 stops on two manuals and pedal and is located in the church of St. Mary the Virgin, St. Mary’s, Platt, England.
