John Holloway has chosen a programme of Baroque and Romantic German pieces for Cantores’ next concert – to be performed in Cirencester Parish Church on Saturday 18 March; and again on 25 March at Holy Apostles Church in Cheltenham. Both concerts start at 7.30pm.
Two motets by Heinrich Schuetz and two JS Bach cantatas – nos. 4 and 191 – will satisfy fans of Baroque music, and most people will love Mozart’s famous ‘Ave Verum Corpus’. Two motets by Mendelssohn and Brahms’ exquisite ‘Geistliches Lied’ comprise the Romantic section of the concert.
We will be joined by our usual string ensemble, who have accompanied us on many occasions; and we also welcome back David Whitehead as our organist for these concerts.
If you have heard these forces performing before, you will not want to miss this concert – and if you haven’t, then come along and hear some glorious music performed by some superb musicians and hear Cantores at their best.
Cantores next perform German Classical and Romantic masterpieces in March 2017, and this will undoubtedly suit their rich, chordal sound.’ (David Watt)
So put the date(s) in your diary and buy your tickets early – this could be a sell-out.
