Singers Winter Concert.
Saturday 4th December. The Cornhall. Diss
Symphony of Psalm
Burgate Singers and The Burgate Ensemble
by Alain Judd.
Burgate Singers are back at the Corn Hall for their Winter Concert. The
Burgate Singers are presenting a concert of beautiful and exciting
seasonal music. The serenely beautiful, much-loved Christmas
Vespers by Monteverdi is the main work in the first half of the
concert. And then, after the interval two shorter pieces. Honeggerís Christmas
Cantata is full of surprises. Some of the audience may believe, as
the choir did at the first rehearsal, that they donít know the piece,
but as it goes on it becomes more and tantalizingly familiar.
Stravinskyís Symphony of Psalms is
an exhilarating and approachable work, composed in 1930 for the 50th
anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and has always been of his
most popular works.
17th century serenity to 20th century fireworks
this concert will be a rewarding and enjoyable starter for the festive season.
