City Chamber Choir’s summer programme takes as its starting point Hindemith’s delightful Six chansons, settings of poems by Rilke that explore man’s relationships, both personal, and with the natural world. 

We further reflect upon this through the music of Alec Roth (StargazerDawn chorus), Eric Whitacre’s Little birds, Cecilia McDowall’s A fancy of folk songs, Bob Chilcott’s The same sun shineCity Chamber Choir and Banchieri’s Contrappunto bestiale alla mente

There is even a chance for the audience to join us in a delicious little round by Orlando di Lasso. Profound and lighthearted by turns, the programme is a comment on the universal truths of love and friendship, the passage of time, and the stewardship of our beautiful world.

Seven Last Words: Music for Choir & Orchestra

Paul Carr | Seven Last Words from the Cross
Palestrina | Magnificat primi toni a 8
J.S. Bach
 | Singet dem Herrn | Brandenberg Concerto No.3 BVW 1048

Partnering with Garden Chamber Orchestra once again, for a concert that runs the whole gamut of emotions. From Bach’s fabulous shout of joy, Singet dem Herrn and uplifting Brandenburg Concerto No 3, via Palestrina’s contemplative Magnicat for double choir, to a dramatic and emotive work by the contemporary composer, Paul Carr, his Seven Last Words from the Cross. An apt work for Holy Week, that has moved audiences to tears, settings of Christ’s words are interspersed with other texts from, amongst others, the Good Friday Antiphon and Reproaches and in the third movement, a stunningly beautiful setting of Phineas Fletcher’s poem A Litany (Drop, drop, slow tears).
