And now to play us out, the Chorale we sang earlier, but this time set by Buxtehude @KingsPlace

Here’s the latest of our pre-concert events to go online, from back in February this year. In it, our Principal Double Bass Chi-chi Nwanoku talks to composer Sally Beamish (pictured) about her new commission for the OAE, Spinal Chords, set to text by Melanie Reid, which was performed that evening.

Don’t forget that you can listen to Spinal Chords on the BBC Iplayer until Saturday evening – 30 minutes into the programme.

Spinal Chords is part of the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music 20×12 commissions, and part of the London 2012 Festival.
