Jesus Christ the Apple Tree with The Part Singers

Local vocalists, The Part Singers, continue their Spring Season with “Jesus Christ the Apple Tree” by Elizabeth Poston.

  • The words come from the early days of Methodism and seem to have been in wide use.
  • They were only published in print in New Hampshire in 1784 in a hymn collection by Joshua Smith.
  • Elizabeth Poston’s setting is haunting in its simplicity.
  • Because we are all recording from home, we continue to be joined by friends from around the UK.
  • The season concludes in three weeks time with a rare Choral work by Clara Schumann. One of the giants of 19th century music.
  • Her career spanned the century. We will mark the 125th anniversary of her death on 20th May with the new recording of “Abendfeier in Venedig”.
