Schubert’s Winter Journey is one of the most precious artistic achievements of the Romantic era, an iconic work and for the listener a profoundly moving experience. Sung by one of its finest present-day interpreters in Jeremy Sams’s perfectly judged new translation, its capacity to communicate ageless truths about life and death will be all the more powerful.

'I cannot think of a more beautifully sung account of this cycle, but that is only part of the story because story it is'

'There’s no faulting Glynn’s sensitive, detailed piano playing'

Prestonkirk Parish Church, East Linton

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.

Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.

The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
