TIMOTHY Roberts, the principal harpsichord soloist with the Gabrielli Consort in London, has been forced to postpone the concert in aid of UNICEF, originally planned for December 27, at the church of the Capuchin convent. A new date will be set in early January.
The programme will include Roberts' own composition of music set to an original villancico (Spanish Christmas Carol).
The text of this work has been housed for 300 years within the walls of the convent and is a personal dedication, replacing the now lost original music by Rafael Vellés. The seasonal programme will also include work by Handel, Cabanilles, Guerrero and a performance of The Happy Prince, a musical and literary joint venture attributed to Oscar Wilde and Lisa Lehmann (in Catalan).
Majorcan choirs and instrumentalists, such as violinist Bernat Cabot, will also be featured in the concert.
The Capuchin convent is in Calle Caputxines, behind the Ramblas, and is currently holding an exhibition of its 17th century Nativity Scenes and other treasures.
