St Martin’s Church, Epsom KT17 4PX
Ralph Vaughan Williams Mass in G minor
Charles Villiers Stanford Latin Magnificat for double choir
Jonathan Dove Wellcome, all Wonders in One Sight
John Tavener Hymn to the Mother of God
and music by Tallis, Byrd and Finzi
Inspiring the title of Epsom Chamber Choir’s spring concert is music by contemporary British composer Jonathan Dove. It isn’t the only work expressing spiritual wonder, however: included on the bill are Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G minor, Stanford’s Latin Magnificat and John Tavener’s Hymn to the Mother of God.
James Henshaw returns as guest conductor for this spring concert in which the choir draws on the rich vein of English choral music. Anthems by Byrd and Tallis from five centuries ago are contrasted with works from both the early and late 20th century. A piece by another fine 20th century choral composer, Gerald Finzi, is also being performed but this time not by the choir but by clarinet and piano – his wonderfully rhapsodic Bagatelles.
