For our summer concert we have a selection of choral delights from all over the globe. First we take a geographical tour in itself: Ernst Toch’s Geographical Fugue which asks the choir to chant words without singing! Rachmaninoff’s luxurious and beloved style of writing for piano is well complimented by simple vocal lines in Night, the second of his 6 choruses op. 15 for women’s voices. A short trip to Venice brings us Monteverdi’s exciting Cantate Domino, bouncing phrases like ‘Sing to the Lord a new song’ back and forth between voices. Hamba Lulu is a boisterous Zulu Wedding Song arranged by Mike Brewer. Fauré’s Pavane, in this rare version by the composer is said by Classic FM to be perhaps the world’s favourite piece of relaxing music(!) Next we’ve Desh, arranged by Ethan Sperry: a rare and effective Indian choral work written using a raga (Indian scale) featuring some pulsing 7/8 patterns. Finally, Lullabye is a wonderful arrangement of the Billy Joel song made famous by the Kings Singers.
