The ancient carved stones of Ewenny Priory provide a perfect backdrop for this solo recital by cellist Alice Neary which includes David Lang’s evocative and compelling world to come.  Written in the aftermath of the tumultuous events of 9/11, Lang describes the work as a “kind of prayer … a meditation on hope and hopelessness”.
