The Gjylaci Duo

The Gjylaci Duo

Part of the 2018 Music in Quiet Places series of concerts...

The Albanian-born Gjylaci brothers have played in major concert venues and festivals across the UK and Europe. Their repertoire includes music from all around the world and across all genres. Esen-Nikolas is the leader of Northern String Quartet and artistic director of Manchester String Orchestra. Jon performs as a soloist across the country. Their popular programme includes Simaku’s arrangement of a folksong from the Albanian community in southern Italy.

Nestling in the church’s impressive 15th century tower is a roughly-built Saxon tower which incorporates a rare semicircular turret with characteristically small windows. Inside, a solid doorway gives access to a circular stairway. The rest of the church dates mainly from the 13th century although the nave roof was raised in the 15th century to accommodate the clerestory. Carved into the stone seats in the porch are games boards, perhaps used to while away the hours.
