Programme Note

The Brandenburg Choral Festival of London brings together two choirs for this concert at St Sepulchre’s. In the first half the enthusiastic West Malling Community Choir will raise smiles and get toes tapping with the lighter side of the choral repertoire, including works by Howard Goodall, Paul Mealor and John Rutter, the ever-popular You raise me up, and the infectious “Rhythm of Life” from Cy Coleman’s Sweet Charity, alongside arrangements of Abba and Simon and Garfunkel. In the second half they pass the baton to the Etcetera Civil Service Choir for an inspiring programme of music inspired by light and its place in sacred texts, including Ola Gjeilo’s Northern Lights, Charles Wood’s Hail, gladdening light and Morten Lauridsen’s stunning five-movement work Lux Aeterna. Join us for an engaging and enlightening evening with these two fabulous choirs.
