The Old Church – Barber ‘Agnus Dei’

Saturday 1st April, 6-7pm

St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, Holborn

Part of the
Brandenburg Choral Festival 2017 

 

We return to St Sepulchre to sing as a part of the internationally-renowned Brandenburg Choral Festival.

We have an American theme to the three central pieces of our performance, with Michael Tippett‘s gorgeous Five Negro Spirituals from his Oratorio, A Child of Our Time, Samuel Barber‘s setting of Agnus Dei to his famous Adagio and Stephen Paulus‘ beautiful setting of Della B. Vik’s evocative text, The Old Church.

We’ll also be performing some of the Renaissance polyphony that we love to sing, this time by Palestrina and Tallis, together with Duruflé‘s Gregorian-inspired Motets and a contemporary work by Jonathan Harvey.
