November 4th is drawing close now and all Choir members are rehearsing madly. Here is what Adrian King, our Conductor has to say about the Composers Vivaldi and Rutter. His descriptive words are an incentive to attend the concert. You can book tickets on line or by phoning Colleen on 54 777 652
“The wonderfully sunny nature of Vivaldi’s Gloria, with its distinctive melodies and rhythms, is characteristic of all of Vivaldi’s music, giving it an immediate and universal appeal. This, his most famous choral piece, presents the traditional Gloria from the Latin Mass in twelve varied cantata-like sections.
Rutter also makes use of the “Gloria” aura and ambience. His unfailing knack to get to the root of the text, excellently balanced vocal writing, melting harmonies, intensely sweet turns of phrase, short ecstatic climaxes, but also a willingness to be astringent, and the rhythmically intense and powerful writing has made this composition one of the cornerstones of the choral repertoire today.”
