Coming Up

Please save the dates for our next concerts in June and early July:

24 June 2017 – Highnam Parish Church; 7.30pm

1 July 2017 – Cirencester Parish Church; 7.30pm

 

Here we will sing music based around the theme of the Old Testament ‘Song of Songs’, including motets by the twin giants of the late 16th Century, Thomas Luis de Victoria and Francisco Guerrero; and also the ‘Missa Ego Flos Campi’ by the 17th Century (and undoubtedly talented) Juan Gutierrez de Padilla, who was born in Malaga but who moved to – and flourished as a composer in – Mexico.  To complement these early masterpieces we will also perform settings of words of the Song by 20th Century or contemporary English composers – John Sanders, William Walton, Patrick Hadley and by the Cantores conductor himself, John Holloway.

Meanwhile, do also make a note of our autumn concert dates (both 7.30pm):

18 November, again in Cirencester Parish Church; and

25 November, in Prestbury St Mary’s Parish Church, Cheltenham GL52 3BQ.
