Programme Note

In this varied and uplifting concert, the Chorus performs one of Czech composer Antonin Dvořák’s finest choral works, Te Deum, as well as the exciting, exotic Polovtsian Dances from the opera Prince Igor by Russian composer Alexander Borodin - his best-known composition. The meltingly romantic Alto Rhapsody by German composer Johannes Brahms was written in 1869 as a wedding gift for Robert Schumann’s daughter, Julie. Rounding off the evening, Ralph Vaughan Williams’s stunning, 1936 cantata Dona Nobis Pacem – in English, ‘Grant us Peace’ – offers a moving plea for peace amidst fears of a new war.
