Welcome to The Glaven Valley Benefice

A Winter's Journey

Fortified by hot dogs, apple cake and mulled wine, Julian Godlee (bass) and Brenda Blewett (piano), took us on a metaphorical frosty and melancholy journey in Cley church with a moving performance of the song cycle Wintereisse by Franz Schubert. The song cycle is a setting of 24 poems by German poet Wilhelm Müller composed almost entirely in minor keys. This performance was enhanced by images of winter scenes relating to each of the songs.

Thank you Julian and Brenda and also thanks go to those involved in the organisation and catering.
