Event Details

 NEW WORLDS 

 

The music of America and beyond, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the American Memorial Chapel at St Paul’s

 

For the Common Man

St Paul’s Cathedral Choir and Organists, conducted by Andrew Carwood

 

Fanfare for the Common Man                   Aaron Copland (trans. C. Driskill-Smith)

I wonder as I wander                                 trad. Appalachian

Five African-American Spirituals               arr. Michael Tippett

Agnus Dei                                                  Samuel Barber

INTERVAL

In the beginning                                         Aaron Copland

Largo from New World Symphony             Antonin Dvořák (trans. E. Lemare)

Chichester Psalms                                     Leonard Bernstein

 

A chance to hear the most famous Cathedral Choir in the world singing into their own unique and breathtaking space, as they perform seminal American choral works of the twentieth-century.  Drawing on the anniversary of the American Memorial Chapel, the concert opens with Copland’s celebrated Fanfare for the Common Man, written in response to the US entry into World War 2, and closes with Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms from 1965, a dramatic reflection of the turbulence of the twentieth century, with a finale that invites all peoples to join together in unity.  Along the way we encounter the music of slavery and despair, and of joy, wonder and hope.
