Circling around the two hearts of the Roman City [Barbican] and the Saxon town [St Paul’s], Jonathan's film will be tracing a story of architectural places within the Square Mile and the musical voices that Londoners will have heard at the time of each architectural event.
The film will reference buildings and include music spanning 20 centuries from c.90AD to 2021 and a repertoire from renowned composers and new recordings from old Roman Chant to a new 2021 commission A Linden Antiphon wds. Paul Munden.
As ArchiCantuor with his performing troupe ArchiCantiores, Jonathan created this video for the Temple Bar Trust's occasional series.
This premiere promises to be a very special event.
Places are free* and your place can be reserved on the Temple Bar Trust website

"Following Canon James Cronin's invitation, being then Dean of St George’s RC Cathedral Southwark, I joined the Fabric Advisory Committee there in 2000. As of 3rd April 2003, following Mr Brian Anderson’s resignation, I was delighted that the Cathedral Parish appointed me to the post of Cathedral Architect. In my third 5-year term, I was charged with designing, specifying and administering the replacement of the Energy Infrastructure to the Cathedral estate, repairing and conserving all high level masonry to the church including the re-leading of the Harry Clarke West Window with Chapel studio, introducing a new Portal (Holy Door) into the West Front at the North Aisle, designing moveable Choir Stalls and developing a new stairwell & lift for secure access and escape in Cathedral House (Grade II). I am now in my fourth 5-year term. I have prepared budgets and briefs for the 2021-2024 period of works, to include briefing and selection of an artist [if funded] for a commemorative stained glass window.
I hold a Master of Studies degree from Cambridge University, Wolfson College, in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment, in which field, the Practice was engaged with the Royal Arsenal for Greenwich Borough, the Old Royal Naval College for The Foundation, and from 2000 till 2014 for the William Whitfield buildings known as Richmond House on Whitehall. From 1996 to 2002, I was Vice Chair [Business] of the Greenwich Borough Strategic Partnership.
I am an Architect Accredited in Building Conservation, a Member of the Cathedral Architects Association (CAA), and a member of the European Association of Cathedral Architects, which is one way in which I maintain my Conservation competence, including papers delivered in Hamburg, Erfurt, Basel then this year in Valetta and Pisa."
