Event description
Concert for choir and organ, with the launch of the CD ‘Consecration’ - Choral works by Sir James MacMillan. + Interview + Reception

About this event

18 expert voices of the award-winning Scottish professional vocal ensemble, Cappella Nova, with Stephen Farr (organ), directed by Alan Tavener BEM, present highlights from their critically acclaimed new recording ‘Consecration’ (Linn Records) of choral works by Sir James MacMillan, fourth in their recorded series of his extraordinary sacred music.

Cappella Nova celebrates its 40th anniversary with this event which also marks the 800th anniversary of the Dominican Order in England and Wales.

The Concert

Set within the glorious neo-Gothic splendours of the Dominican priory church, Our Lady of the Rosary and St Dominic, this is one of the finest and most fitting venues for MacMillan’s sacred choral masterworks.

The programme will feature The Culham Motets (a cycle of five extended a cappella works for the consecration liturgy of a church), plus works for organ and voices including A Special Appeal, Before the Day Breathes, and Sing Joyfully.

Post-Concert Interview with the Composer

After the performance, the audience will enjoy an interview with the composer, conducted by Fr Lawrence Lew OP, and there will be a Q&A with the audience.

Reception

Tickets for a post-concert reception with the composer, wine, and an opportunity to have your programme or CD booklet signed, are also available.

Press quotes:

'It sounds ethereal, like a mythical tale from days of yore ... Alan Tavener presents this music with Cappella Nova not only in his usual tasteful manner, but also in a gloriously radiant manner.' - Fono Forum 'This is an important release and would make an excellent stand-alone introduction to MacMillan’s distinguished and stimulating choral music. Strongly recommended.’ - Gramophone'This is a terrific disc, showing contemporary liturgical music at its very best. Alan Tavener and Cappella Nova have already proved themselves to be highly skilled and greatly committed advocates for James MacMillan’s music and once again they serve him exceptionally well.' - MusicWeb International'In this fine recording ... the Scottish-based choir once more brings a rare beauty and depth of sound to MacMillan’s radiant music.' - BBC Music Magazine‘Exemplary in every way’ - Choir & Organ
