Attracted to the vast sound world for trumpet and organ, Ellie formed a musical partnership with Richard Moore in 2012. After five years’ music-making in the rich aural landscape created by the two instruments, which has included commissioning music from emerging Britsh composers Paul Burke and Solfa Carlile, they recorded a disc of contemporary British and American music on the Convivium label, which will be released in October 2017.
Recent recital venues include Trinity College Chapel, Oxford, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, Alexandra Palace, Fairfield Halls, Croydon, St Alban’s Abbey, Winchester Cathedral and St Paul’s Cathedral.They premièred Paul Burke: Five Poems, as part of the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music’s 2014 programme.
Illumina enjoy performing a wide variety of music, from Baroque, to French, 20th and 21st Century. Their programmes often include works by Handel, Bach, Purcell, Stanley, Widor, Walton, Damase, Elgar, Takemitzu, Eben, Maxwell Davies, and contemporary composers Paul Burke, Solfa Carlile and Torbjorn Hultmark.
