Event Details

For our spring 2013 concerts, we bring together four composers with very individual views of religion and whose spiritual convictions permeate their music.

The main work in this programme is the Mass in E flat opus 109 by Joseph Rheinberger, first performed at the Court Church in Munich in 1879 under the direction of the composer, at that time the royal Kapellmeister.

Zoltan Kodaly's Pange Lingua of 1931, like much of his sacred work, has a dominant role for the organ and sets the different verses of the Latin hymn to contrasting music of enormous character.

John Tavener's 'Two Hymns to the Mother of God' (1985) are a setting of words from the Liturgy of St Basil and from the Vigil Service for the Dormition of the Mother of God.

Introducing Arvo Pärt, a contemporary composer from the Estonian Orthodox tradition, we sing his 1989 Magnificat, a restrained and prayerful capturing a timelessness that is an essential quality of his religious thought.

A rich, thought- and soul-provoking evening that promises to be a very particular pleasure.

Cantores Chamber Choir in the Cotswolds

We are a small, passionately dedicated chamber choir in the Cotswolds, 26 of us singing six or so concerts a year in some of England's most beautiful parish churches.

Two of our concerts every year are with the accompaniment of the Cantores String Ensemble, and we particularly love a cappella singing, with a repertoire ranging from the earliest Tudor times to the most contemporary English composers.
