The Eight Words  A Jazz Suite with Poetry The Tim Boniface Quartet with Malcolm Guite
Jazz saxophonist and composer Tim Boniface and his superb rhythm section team up with renowned poet Malcolm Guite for a remarkable evening of jazz and poetry. Tim’s jazz quartet will play his original work ‘The Eight Words’ – an acclaimed composition that explores the eight sayings of Jesus in St John’s Passion through the deeply expressive harmony and rhythm of the jazz tradition.

The eight movements, that journey through mystery, strength, despair and loving hope, will be interspersed with Malcolm performing some of his deeply moving passion poems. Together, the music and the poetry performed by these two engaging priest-artists who are masters of their crafts offer a fresh way to encounter familiar texts that have inspired artists throughout the centuries.

Malcolm and Tim comprise the former and current Chaplains of Girton College Cambridge.
