100 years of choral favourites

From Schubert’s Mass in G (1815) to Finzi’s well-loved anthem, Lo, the Full Final Sacrifice (1946) , Escafeld Chorale begin their 50th anniversary celebrations by revisiting some of their favourite pieces from the choral repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries. The concert also includes Britten’s cantata, Rejoice in the Lamb (1943), a setting of part of Christopher Smart’s mystical poem, written while the poet was in an asylum and including such memorable phrases as ‘For I will consider my Cat Jeoffrey’.

In complete contrast, the audience will also enjoy the lush, intense choral writing that characterises Faure’s beautiful Cantique de Jean Racine (1865), written when the composer was only 20, and demonstrating the musical qualities that were developed further in his much-loved Requiem.

In addition, we are delighted that several of our former Associate Soloists are joining us for this concert and will be singing a number of solo items by Schubert, Britten and Finzi.
