Forthcoming concerts by the choir

Sunday, April 7 2019 , at 2.30 in Holy Trinity & St George's Catholic Church,
New Road, Kendal. Music for Passiontide. The programme will
include Domenico Scarlatti’s moving 10-voiced setting of the Stabat Mater,
generally thought to be his finest work and the premiere of a new work by Toby
Young commissioned by the choir for the 50th anniversary this year.
Toby studied composition with Robin Holloway at Cambridge whilst also being a
choral scholar in the prestigious King's College Chapel Choir. Since winning
numerous competitions he has been much in demand, both in the UK and abroad,
with works being performed at numerous prestigious venues such as the Royal
Albert Hall, Sadlers Wells, and the Cadogan Hall, by renowned ensembles and
orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic
Orchestra, Academy of Ancient Music, Fretwork, Britten Sinfonia, CHROMA and
Endymion Ensemble, and many choirs including the choirs of King's College
Cambridge, New College Oxford, Westminster Abbey and the BBC Singers.
For his commission Toby has chosen to set verses from ‘The Lamentations of
Jeremiah’. He writes in an idiom accessible to both amateur choirs and their
audiences and the Singers are enjoying working on his sensitive setting of this
biblical text.
The programme on April 7 will also include Renaissance motets by Juan
Esquivel, Francisco Guerrero, Josquin Despres and Thomas Tallis; and from a
later period, motets by Anton Bruckner and Peteris Vasks.
