The Bay of Islands Singers & Whangarei Choral Society with Instrumental Ensemble Proudly present:
Aaron Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man
John Rutter - Gloria
Karl Jenkins - The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace
Rutter's Gloria is a contemporary work drawn from the ancient ecclesiastical Latin text which is exalted, devotional and jubilant by turns. The work is divided into three movements roughly corresponding to traditional symphonic structure. The Armed Man was commissioned to mark the new millennium with a message to put aside the old century with all its conflicts and look forward with hope for future peace. Since its premiere in 2000 the work has made an amazing impact on all who hear it.
