21 Oct 2017: Dvořák Stabat Mater

Dvořák Stabat Mater in piano version. Conductor: Martin Bussey; Soloists: Emily Burnett (sop), Lucy Vallis (alto), Will Smith (tenor), Peter Edge (bass); Pianist: Catherine Barnett. Dvořák’s Stabat Mater is a religious cantata based on the text of Jacopone da Todi’s 13th century poem, which describes Mary’s grief at the death of her son. Whilst it comes from a place of great personal tragedy, it expresses tremendous hope and is one of the towering monuments of choral music.

02-May-2018: Fauré Requiem

Faure’s Requiem is one of the most popular of all choral works. Written by the composer in memory of his parents, it is a gentle, reflective piece that provides comfort for those left behind. Faure was a great melody writer, and several movements, including the famous Pie Jesu, as well as the Agnus Dei, are based around melodies which stay with the listener long after the performance. This short concert of just over an hour, followed by refreshments, will include other, shorter works to contrast and show the choir’s many talents.
