We’re delighted to present a performance by Graduale Nobili, the award-winning, all-female Icelandic choir, which is currently collaborating with Björk for her Manchester International Festival residency, Biophilia.

Graduale Nobili at St Philip's Church, Salford

The 24-piece choir will be performing an unamplified show in the intimate, candle-lit surroundings of St Philip with St Stephen in Salford. St Philip’s is one of Greater Manchester’s finest Georgian buildings, dating back to 1825. The building’s Greek style is unique in Salford.

Graduale Nobili at St Philip's Church, Salford

Graduale Nobili was founded in the autumn of 2000. The choir comprises 24 girls who have been selected from among those who have sung with the Langholtskirkja Graduale Choir. The choir’s first CD was issued 2001, presenting lesser-known 20th-Century choral works from Iceland and abroad. Its second CD, issued in 2008, presented Icelandic choir music, most of it composed for the choir itself.

‘The choir brought a euphoric level of depth, sensitivity and a touch of the supernatural to proceedings’ – Artrocker
