Renaissance Choir

Programme Note

In this concert Emsworth-based Renaissance Choir is exploring and contrasting bright and effervescent choral music alongside the dark and sombre.

Much of the harmony in this programme is of the contemporary “crunchy” type, where gentle discords provide an appealing and restful backdrop to contemplation. It’s music to de-stress, to relax, to chill.

Music includes Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, along with pieces by Eric Whitacre, Paul Mealor, Howard Skempton, Rebecca Dale and others.

Concert pianist Karen Kingsley will accompany the choir.
