Thought-provoking concert at Malvern's Holy Trinity Church will cast light on composers

Malvern Editorial 6th Nov, 2019   0

THOUGHT-provoking music will fill the air at the Holy Trinity Church when the Elgar Chorale of Worcester performs.

‘Canticles of Light’ will take place at the venue in Malvern Link at 7.30pm on November 9.

There will be works by a number of composers including Lauridsen, Rutter, Chilcott and Elgar and all the music will be centred around the theme of light.

Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna’s central movement O Nata Lux is regularly featured on Classic FM and has become a listeners’ favourite.

John Rutter’s ‘Hymn to the Creator of Light’ and Bob Chilcott’s eponymous Canticles of Light are also featured along with Edward Elgar’s ‘With Proud Thanksgiving’, ‘They are at Rest’ and ‘O salutaris hostia’.

The Chorale will be joined by Great Malvern Priory Junior Choir during the concert which will be directed by Piers Maxim.

The Elgar Chorale will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2020 having been formed by the late Dr Donald Hunt in 1980.

As well as further concerts this season, the choir will be performing in the Worcester Three Choirs Festival in July singing a specially commissioned piece by Roderick Williams who will also be performing with the choir.
