This one-act concert will feature some of the greatest choral works.
Our performance will include several choruses from Mozart’s Requiem, How 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 Abendlied, Sure 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
