Join people with experience of homelessness in an overnight performance with Gavin Bryars

A 12-hour performance of composer Gavin Bryars’s Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet – which the Guardian calls ‘one of the 20th century’s great musical works’. This piece for pre-recorded tape and ensemble is based on a 1971 recording of an unknown homeless man singing a religious song.

People with experience of homelessness will be singing and performing alongside Bryars and his ensemble, professional musicians from the renowned chamber orchestra the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, as well as members of the Southbank Sinfonia.
