Revd Canon Dr Vicky Johnson speaker

with Caroline Blair soprano

and Thomas Butler baritone

From cathedral choirs, football chanting and birdsong, to castrati, protest songs and artificial intelligence, Vicky Johnson talks about her new book exploring the world of the voice. She is joined by two outstanding young singers to explore how sound journeys from the lips to the heart; how we speak it, how we hear it and how we embody it. And she reflects on the power of the church’s musical and liturgical heritage to cut through the clamour of our modern-day echo chambers and the roar of populism, to empower those who are seldom heard and speak into the challenges of contemporary life.

The talk will be followed by a book signing, with copies available for purchase.
