Somerset Chamber Choir’s 40th Anniversary Concert

July 27 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£10 – £30

Be sure not to miss this celebration of the choir’s foundation in 1984.

Tallis’s extraordinary 40-part masterpiece will form the centrepiece of this very special concert which will also include two of the very finest English and German works of the Baroque era. Expect musical fireworks from the trumpets and drums so often used at celebrations of the time, yet also the most sensitive of moments in Purcell’s birthday ode for Queen Mary, the wife of William III.

The Choir will be joined by an internationally-renowned period-instrument ensemble and a stunning line-up of vocal soloists.

Programme to include:

PURCELL Come Ye Sons of Art*
TALLIS Spem in Alium
JS BACH Magnificat
HANDEL Eternal Source of Light Divine
PRAETORIUS Cantate Domino

*contains the famous aria “Sound the trumpet till around you make the listening shores rebound.”

Andrea Brown – Conductor
Florilegium – Period Instrument Ensemble
Emily Vine – Soprano
Amy Carson – Soprano
