Kingston Choral Society Summer Concert – The Power of Song

29 June@7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Duruflé: Requiem
Bruch: Die Macht des Gesanges
Tavener: Svyati
Vierne: Les Angélus

This fascinating programme brings together works from three very different traditions. Duruflé’s love of Gregorian plainchant shines through his understated, achingly lyrical Requiem mass, which will be performed alongside his friend Vierne’s enchanting songs for mezzo-soprano and organ. John Tavener’s Svyati for choir and cello, written in memory of a friend, draws movingly on the colour and tradition of the Russian Orthodox church. Finally, The Power of Song by Max Bruch, is an impassioned, Romantic hymn to the quasi-religious power of music itself.

Baritone: Gareth Brynmor John
Organ: James Orford
