Beauty in Music:
Beauty is truth, truth beauty; that is all ye know on earth and all ye need to know (Keats).

Come and join us for this concert of truly beautiful music – music which choristers love to sing and which may transport you to another plane!

We feature Fauré’s Requiem with soloists Kelly Harris (soprano) and Arthur Adams-Close (baritone). We are delighted to welcome back the splendid Janet Gibbs to play the lovely organ accompaniment. Who would not be moved by the Agnus Dei, Libera Me or Pie Jesu?

The concert also gives us time to luxuriate in the beautiful sounds of music by Mozart, Parry, Stanford, and Harris, including Beati quorum via, Faire is the heaven and My Soul, there is a country. Beautiful music comes from all times. So we will also sing works by the more modern composers, Morten Lauridsen, John Taverner and Ola Gjeilo, as well as earlier masters like Victoria and Byrd.

Amidst the beautiful harmonies, you will hear the ethereal bluebird, feel the sting in the tail of the dying swan, surrender to the serenity of Ave Verum (Mozart) and Ubi Caritas (Gjeilo), and hear two versions of The Lamb, just to mention a few of the delights that await.
