Loud Praises sound at Heaven’s High Gate
Choral music from C.19 and C.20
Sunday 24th June 2018 8pm
St. Michael and All Angels, Summertown, Oxford, OX2 7ES
JanJoost van Elburg will direct the Bartholomew Consort in a choral tour of C19 & C20 liturgical music, ranging from the romantic era inhabited by Felix Mendelssohn (b.1809) through to the self taught Francis Poulenc (d.1963), who wrote from an equally emotional view point. Between these composers were others who embraced similar ideals; we shall include the child prodigy Joseph Rheinberger (church organist at the age of 7), the prolific composer and teacher Charles Villiers Stanford and Max Reger, whose music displayed some Baroque influences, even into the early C20.
Entry is free, but your donations towards the costs of the concert will be most welcome.
On November 3rd 2018 in St. Michael and All Angels Church, Summertown, Oxford, OX2 7ES, the Bartholomew Consort under JanJoost van Elburg, will perform the Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem in an arrangement for two-piano accompaniment.
