This concert is labelled “Stabat Mater”.
This reflects the Lenten period and points to our central work ...Palestrina’s setting of these words. This is a grand double choir piece with much beauty and poignancy.
Our other distinctive work in this programme is Kodaly’s “Jesus and the Traders” which descriptively tells of Jesus’ eviction of the money traders from the Temple which took place in Holy Week.
As a complete contrast we are including a recorder ensemble to enrich our programme.
