Programme Note

Featuring The Choirs of Garden House School, St Barnabas’ CE Primary School & Thomas’ School, Battersea

Last years opening concert in the RH Concert Series brought together professional musicians alongside singers and orchestral players from local schools in a stunning performance of Brittens Noyes Fludde and this year we repeat the feat. Rutters Mass of the Children, first performed at Carnegie Hall in 2003, is a nonliturgical Missa brevis, setting the traditional Latin and Greek Mass text interwoven with several English poems.

Brittens cantata Saint Nicolas ushers in the Christmas season with a text by Eric Crozier, written after extensive research into the legendary life of Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, and is a dramatic portrait of the life of, and legends associated with, this mystical figure. The English Chamber Choir celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2012, and join soloists Keri Fuge, Samuel Furness, 2013 Kathleen Ferrier Award winner Gareth Brynmor John, the Wren Players and local schoolchildren under the baton of the Royal Hospitals Director of Music, William Vann.
