Diamond Anniversary Concert: Six Centuries of Song
Sat 22 April 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 BST
The Choir invites everyone to celebrate with us at this special Diamond Anniversary concert, when we perform an exciting and typically eclectic selection of choral works from the past 600 years, reflecting the many facets of our choral versatility. Alongside the familar Byrd, Bach, Mendelssohn and Handel, we will be singing modern choral classics from Jonathan Dove, Arvo Pärt and Eric Whitacre, and giving our first performance of Latvian composer Ugis Praulinš’ Missa Regensis, a work composed in the spirit of the great Renaissance masses but in a modern and totally direct musical language. Party-pieces from individual sections of the Choir, and contributions from Neil Taylor and Pete Durrant ensure no one will be left out of this celebration. A concert not to be missed!
