The King's Chamber Orchestra bring new dimension to worship songs

FIERCE! DISTRIBUTION are releasing the album 'String Heaven' by the King's Chamber Orchestra on 10th November. Taking worship songs composed by such artists as Delirious?, Matt Redman, Hillsong and Tim Hughes, the professional orchestra formed in 1985 by Gerard Le Feuvre, will be promoting their release with an 11-date UK tour kicking off in St James, Jersey on 16th November 9, and concluding in Littlehampton on 9th December. Said Le Feuvre, "One of the hallmarks of our 25 year career as an orchestra has been bringing improvised music to our audiences. More often than not we might have spent hours practising Mozart or Dvorak, but the biggest reaction from the audience comes for the improvisations which had no rehearsal and which come straight from the heart. We have no scientific answer for those musical enthusiasts who pursue us for an explanation as to how we are able to achieve these wonderful spontaneous moments, other than to point to the prayer and worship that underpins it all, and ultimately to point to Jesus "the author and perfector of our faith" and of our music!" CR
