Charlotte was commissioned earlier this year to write a wedding piece for Matthew and Jane Stahl for their wedding day.

The piece was performed and recorded live at All Souls Church in Regents Street, London as Jane walked down the aisle.

‘Agapé’ was the chosen title of this work, due to its relationship to the meaning of ‘love’ in Christianty as well as being one of the four ancient Greek gods of ‘love’, this god representing unconditional love.

The piece was written for violin, cello, piano, and soprano and tenor voices. Charlotte played the cello for this ceremony and recording.

Lyrics were set by Rhys Laverty from a passage from the Bible – ‘Song of songs, Chapter 2’.

Recording to follow shortly.
