In the superb surroundings of Southwell Minster, come and hear the magical combination of voices and instruments in a programme bursting with marvellous music. The Cecilian Singers and saraBande join forces for works by some of music's mightiest masters, and each ensemble is heard in its own right in music perfectly suited to the Minster's glorious acoustic.
Together The Cecilian Singers and saraBande offer a marvellous motet by masterly MOZART – ‘Misericordias Domini’ - and the thrilling psalm-cantata ‘Dixit Dominus’ by heroic HANDEL, full of the vim and vigour of his early years.
saraBande are joined by Carmen Flores, renowned soloist and Principal Viola at Birmingham Royal Ballet, for TELEMANN's vibrant ‘Viola Concerto’. The Cecilian Singers also present a whirlwind survey of 400 years of English music in six pieces. Composers include THOMAS TOMKINS, HENRY PURCELL, and RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS.
The Cecilian Singers' Director of Music is former King's Singer Jeremy Jackman, who now enjoys an international reputation as one of the UK's finest Choral Directors. saraBande's Artistic Director is Peter Siepmann, who divides his career between conducting, organ playing and school teaching.
Two fine ensembles; matchless music by great composers; awesome architecture!
The programme will also include a mixed programme of choral favourites -- Jerermy Jackman
