Lent Concerts 2018

Easter Contemplations: Exeter Chamber Choir
Saturday March 10 and 17, 2018

Crucifixion image

with Andrew Daldorph, director and Hilary Boxer, cello
– food for the soul, a feast of atmospheric and sonorous music to contemplate Christ’s passion.

Experience the thrill of old and new, with an a cappella programme that spans the centuries, from the famous “Crucifixus a 8” by Antonio Lotti, to James MacMillan’s “Miserere”, already acknowledged as a modern masterpiece, motets by Victoria, Bruckner, Pablo Casals and René Clausen, as well as extracts from Alexander Gretchaninov’s “Passion Week”, a choral work rarely heard in this country but a monumental standard in the Russian Orthodox Church’s celebration of Easter.

We also feature cellist, Hilary Boxer, providing moments of reflection between the choral items, with works for solo cello by Bach and Vivaldi, accompanied by Andrew Daldorph on chamber organ,
…and all in the stunning acoustics of Buckfast Abbey and St. Michael and All Angels Church, Mount Dinham, in Exeter.

Saturday, 10th March 2018, 7.30pm at Buckfast Abbey
