Durham, NC - Former Duke Chapel Dean Sam Wells, now vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London, returns to campus Monday, June 9, to present a concert by his parish's choir.

The event, part of the group's "Resurrection, Ascension, and Pentecost" tour, will be held at 8 p.m. in Duke Chapel. It is free and open to the public.

The concert will include pieces by British composers James MacMillan, Herbert Howells and Kenneth Leighton. Wells will offer reflections on the music, St. Martin's music director Andrew Earis will conduct, and the Vocal Arts Ensemble of Durham will participate in the performance.

"The talented choir from St. Martin's will sing beautifully the Renaissance and 19th and 20th century English works," said Duke Chapel Music Director Rodney Wynkoop. "But having insightful commentary by Sam Wells will add even more depth of meaning to the listening experience."

Wells will also preach June 8 at the chapel during the 11 a.m. Sunday worship service. The St. Martin's choir will provide musical leadership at the service.
