Oundle & District Choral Society are pleased to present
Vivaldi " Gloria " & Tippett "Five Negro Spirituals"
Saturday 13th April at 7:30pm.
St Peter’s Church, Oundle
North Street, Oundle
The varied programme will include:
- Antonio Vivaldi’s outstandingly popular setting of the Gloria, which has been the subject of over 100 CD recordings since it was “re-discovered” in 1939, 225 years after Vivaldi wrote the piece
- Sir Michael Tippett’s moving adaptations of 5 negro spirituals from his Oratorio A Child of our Time. Tippett used the spirituals in the same way as Bach did with the chorales in his Passions, to provide the audience with well-known melodies to bind the overall work together
- A selection of modern secular works from composers ranging from Karl Jenkins to Ēriks Ešenvalds and including Samuel Barber’s perennial favourite Adagio for Strings
The Society will be accompanied by the Oundle Choral Society Ensemble, who so ably performed Handel’s Messiah for us at Christmas last and will welcome our usual high standard of vocal soloists to brighten the evening for everyone.
The Society would like to thank Oundle Town Council for their continuing support for our efforts.
This concert is also supported by VSHLaw solicitors of Thrapston.
We look forward to seeing you!
