Vivaldi Gloria - Summer Concert 2016

Sun, 19 Jun 2016
Antonio Lucio Vivaldi composed this Gloria in Venice, probably in 1715, for the choir of the Ospedale della Pietà, an orphanage for girls (or more probably a home, generously endowed by the girls’ “anonymous” fathers, for the illegitimate daughters of Venetian noblemen and their mistresses). The wonderfully sunny nature of the Gloria, with its distinctive melodies and rhythms, is characteristic of all of Vivaldi’s music, giving it an immediate and universal appeal.

Also performing Monteverdi’s Beatus Vir & Handel’s Acis & Galatea

Christopher Lee College, Wellington College
Tickets £12 (£2 Students)

Feel The Spirit

FEEL THE SPIRIT – AN EVENING OF SPIRITUALS AND JAZZ BY JOHN RUTTER & BOB CHILCOTT

FEEL THE SPIRIT – JOHN RUTTER

A cycle of seven spirituals, arranged for Mezzo-Soprano soloist, and mixed choir

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
Steal Away,
I got a robe,
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,
Ev’ry time I feel the spirit,
Deep river,
When the saints go marchin in.

A LITTLE JAZZ MASS – BOB CHILCOTT

Composed for the 2004 Crescent City Choral Festival, New Orleans. Chilcott brings together two very diverse traditions – the Latin mass and the jazz idiom – in such an expressive and entirely unforced way, an achievement that has generally eluded other composers who have tried something similar.

2005 The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace By Karl Jenkins

Sat, 11 Jun 2005
        

The Armed Man: A Mass For Peace By Karl Jenkins

Commissioned by Guy Wilson, Master of the Royal Armouries, Britain’s oldest national museum, The Armed Man was concieved, initially, as a Millennium project but was dedicated by the composer to the victims of Kosovo.

A marching army merges into reflections on Islamic and Christian calls to prayer, but a menacing Sanctus leads to war and mass destruction. The point that one death is one too many is made by the Agnus Dei but it is left to the Benedictus to heal the wounds of the survivors. The Mass ends with the the affirmation from Revelations that change is possible, that pain and death can be overcome.

Jenkins has created moving and exciting music around excerpts from such sources as the Bible, poetry, songs and chants. These range from L’Homme Arme (“The armed man must be feared…”, anon. 1450 – 63) through the Islamic call to prayer, parts of the Christian Mass, poems by Dryden, Kipling, Malory, Swift, Sankichi and Wilson and from the Mahabharata.

African Sanctus - 2004

Thu, 1 Jan 2004

African Sanctus - 2004

During a visit to Cairo in 1969, on the citadel hill overlooking the Nile, Fanshawe conceived the idea of a western choir accompanying Islamic Muezzins as a work in “Praise to One God”.

With tape-recorder, rucksack and camera, hitching lifts (often by camel) he first travelled from Cairo to Khartoum and then west to the Marra mountains.

On the mountaintop, under a full moon, he recorded four men sitting on a prayer mat, in a deep trance, chanting, swaying from side to side, unconscious of his presence. This experience gave him the inspiration for the final form of the work – that “praise to one God” should contain a wide variety of East African sounds. He re-traced his tracks back towards the Red Sea and embarked on a long expedition, in the shape of a symbolic Cross, through Sudan, Uganda and Kenya and towards “the source of the Nile’s music” – Lake Victoria – recording as he went. In 1973, with his new wife, he continued the search for folk music around Lake Victoria and, following the first performance, returned again with a BBC film crew to revisit the places and people he met on the original journey.
