Presented by St Albans St Cecilia Society
The St Albans St Cecilia Festival Society (Hardynge Choir, Radlett Choral Society, St Albans Chamber Choir & St Albans Symphony Orchestra), with Vivamus and a Massed Children’s Choir from across Hertfordshire, perform a magnificent concert with a flavour of the sea. The main work is Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony.
Charlotte-Anne Shipley - Soprano
Morgan Pearse - Baritone
Rufus Frowde - Conductor
This programme with a flavour of the sea includes:
Benjamin Britten - Fanfare for St Edmundsbury
Benjamin Britten - Dawn and Sunday Morning from Peter Grimes
The Sea Interludes from Britten’s Peter Grimes are like a musical postcard from the Suffolk coast, where the opera is set. In this concert Dawn and Sunday Morning are interleaved with Three Seaside Postcards.
Jonathan Dove - Seaside PostcardsThe first postcard is like a journey. A feeling of loss and sadness permeates the second postcard. The final postcard celebrates seaside fun.
Ralph Vaughan Williams - A Sea Symphony
It is one of the first symphonies in which a choir is used throughout the work: the text comes from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass.
The concert is being held at St Albans Cathedral, St Albans, AL1 1BY.
