7pm, Saturday 14 June – St Martin’s Church, Brasted
Cantate invite you to join them for a summer’s evening of beautiful music packed full of melody.
The first half will feature English Song, with seventeenth century madrigals followed by Romantic part-songs. Composers include Elgar, Parry, Stanford (The Blue Bird) and Delius’ stunning part-songs without words. We hope to be outside enjoying the summer’s evening in the lovely country setting as we perform this part of the concert – weather permitting!
For the second half of the concert we move inside and are joined by Organist, Iestyn Evans, to perform Pergolesi’s joyful Magnificat, Eric Whitacre’s wonderful Sleep, and drawing to a joyful and celebratory conclusion with Handel’s anthem My heart is Inditing.
We look forward to seeing you.
ABOUT THE CHOIR
The Cantate Choir celebrated its 10th anniversary in October 2012 and began 2013 and its second decade in great shape. Under Robin Walker’s leadership the choir has grown in stature, achieving standards of which its members are justly proud. The choir’s desire to reach new levels of excellence is driven by the warm support of its loyal and growing audience. We thank you for this and very much hope that you will continue to enjoy our concerts.
We are winners of the Top Kent Choir 2014; we were delighted to perform at the finals in Canterbury in April against strong competition and were very excited to win! We will be participating in a variety of events following that achievement so we will keep you informed. You will find more on that occasion in our news section.
