Addison Singers - Chilcott 'Gloria'

Add to my Calendar 26-11-2016 19:30 26-11-2016 21:30 36 Addison Singers - Chilcott 'Gloria' The Addison Singers have long had a reputation for their programming of new music. They have over the years enjoyed a close association with a number of leading composers and had pieces especially written for them by Gabriel Jackson, Cecilia McDowall, Gavin Bryars, William Bolcom and Howard Skempton amongst others. For their autumn concert both the Oratorio and Chamber Choirs focus on music by four very different living composers - Bob Chilcott, Sir James Macmillan, Howard Goodall and Master of the Queen's Music, Judith Weir, all of whom are concerned with writing music that is both rewarding and enjoyable for amateur choirs and their audiences. The Chamber Choir sing short pieces by James Macmillan and Judith Weir (unusually accompanied by trumpet and trombone respectively), whilst the Oratorio Choir give the London premiere of Bob Chilcott's joyful 'Gloria' (written for Choralis in Washington DC), the UK live premiere of 'Sure of the Sky, Sure of the Sun....' by Howard Goodall (a moving work setting English and German texts and written for the World War I commemoration in 2014), James Macmillan's 'A New Song' and 'I love all beauteous things' written by Judith Weir earlier this year to celebrate the 90th birthday of HM The Queen. The composers will attend a rehearsal and work with the choirs on their pieces, giving them a rare insight into the creation of new music. This celebration of new choral music culminates in a concert on November 26th for which the choirs will be joined by the organist Edward Kemp-Luck and brass and percussion players from the Brandenburg Sinfonia.
