The Moon Suite
Inspired by Luke Jerram's extraordinary art installation Museum of the Moon, The Moon Suite was commissioned by Wells Cathedral to celebrate the installation of the enormous illuminated moon in the nave of the cathedral during October 2021. Composed by Dominic Beeton and with Muriele providing spiritual chants and with Sarah Palmer on flute, bass recorder, bansuri flute, the Moon Suite highlights the seas, mountains and bays on the moon.
"It was a delight to welcome Sanctus Project back to Wells Cathedral as part of the Festival of the Moon. The Moon Suite, written especially for the festival transported the audience to a another realm and the atmosphere created by Dominic Beeton’s music was a beautiful mix of soothing and thought provoking soundscapes."
Matthew Minter, Events Manager, Wells Cathedral
"Thank you so much for bringing the Sanctus Project to Romsey yet again. It was a privilege to hear Moon Suite performed in the Abbey yesterday, it is probably the closest we will get to a world premiere! I felt the performance was very well received (one of the audience travelled from Chichester to hear you) and there was genuine appreciation of your work. Will you please pass on my thanks to Muriele the singer and Sarah the flautist for their magnificent contributions."
David Bowman, Events Manager, Romsey Abbey
"Hi, I had the privilege of attending your .performance of The Moon Suite at Wells Cathedral last night. It was one of the most mesmerising and compelling musical experiences I have experienced. Congratulations on an extraordinary achievement with this Suite."
