Paul Spicer – Conductor

English Choral Experience Camerata Choir

Programme Note

English Choral Experience is a series of choral courses led by the renowned choral conductor, Paul Spicer, at home and abroad. Camerata is the chamber choir course.

This concert will be the culmination of a weekend of marvellous music making. Singers will meet together on Saturday morning for the first time and by Sunday teatime will be ready (hopefully) to perform this wonderful programme of music. 

The highlight of this concert has to be the UK premiere of both Judith Bingham's anthem "Ave Virgo Sanctissima", commissioned by St Thomas the Apostle, Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, and first performed there in 2012, and Gareth Treseder's "And I saw a new heaven", commissioned by St James' Old Cathedral, Melbourne, Australia. It will be both an honour and a privilege for Camerata to sing these pieces.
