Angus McPhee - Genesis Foundation

Angus McPhee

Angus McPhee’s Panem Nostrum… Ave Maria was commissioned by the Genesis Foundation for a concert (on 27 February 2019) at the Royal Academy of Arts with Eamonn Dougan and The Sixteen inspired by Bill Viola/Michelangelo: Life, Death, Rebirth, which paired installations by pioneering video artist Bill Viola with rarely-seen drawings by Michelangelo.  The exhibition was sponsored by the Genesis Foundation.

The piece took its influence from a setting of the same text by composer Josquin des Prez and was programmed alongside music from the Sistine Chapel coupled with musical responses from contemporary composers

Angus McPhee is a British musician whose works have been performed at the meeting of General Synod at York Minster, the Temple Winter Festival and as far afield as Hong Kong and California.

He has sung under the batons of Harry Christophers, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Harry Bickett, Philippe Herreweghe and Jos van Veldhoven.
