We are presenting a very special programme for our next concert on Saturday 16th March in All Saints’ Parish Church, Okehampton.
The opening work is Mozart’s “Solemn Vespers” dating from 1780, The “Laudate Dominum” is the most famous part of the work which, taken as a whole, is full of surprises and passages of sublime beauty.
Haydn’s delightful “Maria Theresa Mass” dates from 1799, when Haydn was well-established.
To celebrate St Patrick’s Day (17th March) we will be giving the premiere performance of an exciting new piece for choir and orchestra “The Prayer of St Patrick” by the society’s conductor, the composer Andrew Wilson, shortly to visit Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris to hear his “La Rosace” performed there
The choir will be accompanied by a full orchestra led by Paul Mathews and will be joined by a starry line up of professional soloists: Margaret Aagesen Hughes (soprano); Louise Mott (mezzo soprano; Andrew Henley (Tenor); and Julian Rippon (Bass)
Refreshments will be served after the concert.
Tickets are £10 (£5 to students) and can be purchased from Cargo Cult (8, Okehampton Arcade) or at the door.
