  1. Ken Mathews Says:

    On Saturday the 18th of November, Patricia and Matt Redman came to our village, Oborne, which is just outside Sherborne in Dorset, and put on their concert ‘Songs of The Great War’. It was brilliant! In fact, in a way it was a pity that they were up on a stage as their performance is so wonderfully informal – we could all have been sitting around the fireside at home – a family gathering! Patricia’s sang the songs – she really does have a beautiful voice – and the virtuoso Matt accompanied her on a whole range of stringed instruments. Although the background to the songs – the Great War – is somber, there was nothing maudlin or sentimental about the music – well, alright, just a little bit sentimental at times! But with their relaxed style and their chatter about the songs and Matt’s instruments, it was a hugely entertaining and fun evening, one that we will long remember. We want them both to come back to Oborne as soon as possible to do their 1940’s concert. Thank you Patricia and Matt for coming a long way to deepest Dorset and giving us a truly great evening.

    Ken Mathews


    I asked for IN DARKNESS LET ME DWELL by JOHN DOWLAND published 1610 apparently but I really hope it was actually written before then and Queen Elizabeth who died in 1603 at least heard it because I always think Patricia sings it as Gloriana herself might have when free from fortune and mens eyes – Notoriously insomniac and plagued by terrible dreams when she did at last doze off. a tormented spirit full of righteous anger and secret gnawing guilt. I have always found the Renaissance lute a strange shell of death as it exists in Europe – it was clearly designed as a parlour instrument because even birdsong will drown it let alone a soaring Mezzo . What Matt gives us here is a kind of Mythic – Dowland fled from the Court of King James I to the Ottoman Porte. James was a Protestant a pedant and a graceless bogey picking bore. Dowland was a Catholic so he had to go as many others did. He spent time in Denmark and The Empire He might have sailed to Constantinople. THIS IS THE TURKISH VERSION Matt plays an Oud the lutes great grandfather, much louder fretless and built for melodic improvisation. Patricia even chose a dress that looks 16th Century Turkish a lot more comfortable than the stand up by themselves monstrance’s of Elizabeth’s reign. I was surprised I had overthought the event and it turned out as something new and brighter despite the melancholy words obsessed by death .


    Go get one booked and sung – its like being a Duke of Chandos or a Prince Esterházy for ten minutes before coming down bang to earth.


    Patricia I just listened to the latest home concert. I had been a little concerned about the later verses of ‘My Lagan Love’ as it gets a lot steamier round verse three or four and becomes just the kind of thing an old Irish Baritone that had too much the drink taken, would pull his vulcanised rubber teeth out for.
    “Her warm kiss is felicity that knows no trace of sin”
    I need not have worried you sensed its ancient barbaric roots and sang it like a high priestess in the depths of the great tumulus at New Grange reinforced by Matts eerie thundering BASS. If ever an instrument created its own mythic space its that one. And then the strange words the old aural similes the bogwood fire all fitted in a Song of Hearts desire.
    I think it’s one of your great gifts that you can hold and hold those long notes and then slowly bend them like gold wires without losing forward momentum.

    I just watched and heard the latest recital and have no fears ‘HOW LONG GREAT GOD’ sounds like the masterwork it is and your nose probably itched from delivering that disembodied angel head voice with all its ornaments glittering and every single word as clear as glass. I think the earthy rumble and density of the organ counterpointed the vocal swirls wonderfully – the Melotron does a grand impersonation without the bulk and mass of a pipe organ – I need to listen again, for the harpsichord now I am not worried about the words . As Matt said at the end it is a perfect document of its time – the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment. The upward Baroque gaze of “Points again to Thee” was a perfect touch. From now on you TOTALLY OWN THIS as a finisher or an Encore or even as a Funeral Song

    When You sing Amsterdam it becomes a Majestic Anthem that rises above the polluted waters of a real port and sails out as a great galleon with a figurehead of a goddess with her hands on hips hips into the fog of a symbolist sea. YES I was lying before, my computer has no sound and the cheepo tablet has a developed charging fault and shuts off after 2 minutes reading 1 percent. So I bought myself a bigger tablet and plugged in the phone pre amplifier the sound is wonderful the Oud perfect the vocal sublime and I am so glad I asked you to do it.

    […] A song from Patricia Hammond and Matt Redman: PatriciaHammond.com/requests […]


    Ernest Barton
    You know the story Absolom rebelling against his father David is defeated in an oak wood by David’s army and 20,000 are slain in the forest. Fleeing on a mule – he passes under a spreading oak and his long most probably curly hair gets caught in the branches leaving him hanging, Davids general JOAB comes up and knowing that David wanted his son spared Hurls three darts – PLUMBATA into his chest. Its what a professional soldier would do – kill your kings enemies because if they live they are just likely to try it again. Absolom is cut down still alive and probably after the usual things like blinding nose removal and castration is finally killed and buried under rocks . This bloody story is the prequal to the song and the tones of battle come through in Matts brief intro – Here I am not sure if the melotron had been primed with samples because the result hardly sounds like a piano at all it has deep reverberating notes and bell like murderous high pitched cords in the right hand that reminded me of the Battle on the Ice in Alexander Nevsky Then Patricia comes in deep and relates how David wept for the son who hated him “Would that I had died for thee O Absolom my son.” The sudden flung down page of sheet music behind her produces the merest flicker of a smile but she carries on unflinching as the repetitions get more emotional and picks up the huge cowboy triangle by its string and gives it a single magical TING right at the end. Only then does the masque of intense sorrow slip. But they carry on discussing it afterwards as though there was something there in it more felt than heard as polyphonic music always seems to have before going on to do a George Formby number with great gusto and bright red lips.
