Peter Broadbent, our Music Director, writes:
In our first concert for 20 months we want to celebrate some of the many different facets of the Joyful Company, so we feature music both Sacred and Secular from many countries, but all spiritual.
Familiar motets by William Byrd, German Romanticism as represented by Mendelssohn’s setting of Psalm 100, Bruckner’s ever popular Locus Iste, and motets by the Hungarian György Orbán (no relation), English composers Andrew Gant and Alexander Campkin make up the Sacred part of the programme.
The Profane half features madrigals by Byrd’s contemporary John Bennet, two songs by Elgar (who in his lifetime was accused of writing German Romantic music), and songs by American Samuel Barber, the French composer Poulenc and a beautiful short Hungarian song by Ferenc Farkas.
This will all be rounded off with a South American folk song about an Ox – perhaps that is not spiritual!
