5 Dec 2021: Colossal Chorale

Season 2021 Finale

Sunday 5 December 2021 (2.30pm)

Saint Mary of the Angels, 

Corner Boulcott and Willis Streets.                                        

Self-presented concert

This one-act concert will feature some of the greatest choral works.

Our performance will include several choruses from Mozart’s RequiemHow Lovely Is They Dwelling Place from Brahms’ Requiem and sneak peek into the glory of the Bach Mass in B Minor (which we’re now presenting in April) in the form of Et Incarnatus Est. 

Other highlights include Samuel Barber’s Agnus Dei, Rheinberger’s AbendliedSure on this Shining Night by Luarisden — a perennial favourite — A Te Tarakihi from Alfred Hill & Ngati Maniopoto arr .B. Stewart and Hamba Lulu by Brewer arr B. Stewart.

We’ll close out with the beautiful Vaughan Williams Fantasia on Christmas Carols
featuring the stunning voice of a former Orpheus Scholar, Joe Haddow (baritone).
And what concert near Christmas would be complete without the Handel’s mighty
Hallelujah Chorus?


Brent Stewart — Music Director

Joe Haddow — Baritone

Thomas Nikora — Pianist

Entry by Koha

This is our third Colossal Chorale. The church seats 500 people, and each of the
previous ones have been a huge success with a packed house, so get there early!
