Concert: Rejoice

October 20th, 2013

Britten-Purcell PosterREJOICE!

Saturday 23 November 2013

St Machar’s Cathedral, Aberdeen

Performance: 7.30pm

Benjamin Britten’s special contribution to vocal music in the 20th century has been immense.

By his own admission, he was highly influenced by the 17th century composer Henry Purcell – both sharing sensitivity to the idiosyncratic rhythms of their native English language.

The concert juxtaposes works by each composer: including Britten’s Hymn to St Cecilia and Rejoice in the Lamb, and two major Verse Anthems by Purcell. The centrally placed ‘Golden Sonata’ will be played on original instruments.

This exciting programme conducted by Roger B Williams and part of Aberdeen’s ‘Connecting Britten’ festival, is Con Anima’s special tribute to Britten’s centenary.

Tickets £10 (£8 conc., £5 student) from Aberdeen Box Office ( 01224 641122 ) or choir members

Partly filmed at the University of Aberdeen and at Con Anima’s recording session at Blair’s Museum, Michael Stillwater’s award-winning documentary Shining Night explores the work of Morten Lauridsen, and features performances by the University of Aberdeen Choral Society, Symphony Orchestra and Con Anima Chamber Choir. Now the film returns to Scotland, receiving its UK premier here in Aberdeen as part of an evening of musical celebration for professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Members of the public are invited to come and sing alongside the Choral Society and Con Anima Chamber Choir, under the direction of conductors Professor Paul Mealor and Chris Gray, participating in a short concert of contemporary choral music. All levels of ability welcome, with a short practice before the performance. Following this, we shall screen the film itself, followed by a question and answer session with Michael Stillwater.
