Music for a Summer’s Evening.
Conducted by the multi talented Marcio Da Silva, who delighted a packed Priory by turning to the audience and singing a Baritone solo during the very popular previous Concert, A Night At The Opera, this programme is a wonderful selection of music performed by the Choir and the Priory Organ.
Christopher Dowie, well known brilliant accompanist, conductor, organist and composer will be performing on the
magnificent Nicholson 4,500 pipe Organ:-
Walton’s 'Orb and Sceptre' March, written for the Coronation of Elizabeth II
Walton's 'Crown Imperial', performed for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine.
Elgar’s much loved and rousing Pomp and Circumstance March No.4.
Amongst the choral pieces the choir will perform are: the Bob Chilcott 'Gloria', an uplifting and utterly jubilant work;
John Rutter’s ever popular setting of the 'Te Deum';
CHH Parry’s 'Songs of Farewell', a nostalgic reflection of a life filled with music; and
Charles Villiers Stanford’s set of three Motets, which bring a freshness and vitality and are held in the highest regard.
An evening to remember well after Summer is over!
