Programme Note

We start the season with a concert of reflection and remembrance. Two of Bach's incomparable motets, whose brilliance and beauty are recognised the world over, set a contemplative tone that prompts reflection on mortality and spiritual journeying.

 

Vaughan Williams's Mass in G minor is one of the most beautiful large-scale a cappella sacred choral works of the twentieth century, stylistically grounded in the musical styles of the Elizabethan period whilst also incorporating elements of ancient chant. Toronto composer Eleanor Daley's Requiem is a work of sensitivity and introspection, using texts from the traditional Roman Catholic requiem mass, biblical psalms and contemporary poetry.
