Concert of Choral Music through the Ages

July 13, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

£6 – £7.50

CELEBRATE! with the hugely popular ‘The New Chamber Choir’.

Conducted by Paul Hudson.

The choir will be joined by the talented young trumpet soloist Lucy Heeley.

The concert is called ‘Celebrate!’ – but just what is being celebrated is up to the audience!  It could be the delights of summer in the countryside; it could be love, or sleep, or old age – there are musical celebrations of them all.  Or it could just be a celebration of the wonderful variety of music from more than 500 years.

The earliest piece is a silly little song about a cricket, published in 1505.  The most recent is the beautiful Quanta Qualia from Patrick Hawes’ 2011 album ‘Blue on Blue’.  As well as pieces for solo trumpet, the programme will include:

  • Parry’s great anthem I Was Glad (sung at every British coronation since 1902)
  • An arrangement of The Beatles’ When I’m 64
  • The traditional American spiritual I Wanna Die Easy
  • Part of Purcell’s 1692 version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in which the fairies attack the drunken poet
  • Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer, arranged for voices

Saturday 13th July at 7.30pm.

St Michael and All Angels’ Church, Hathersage.

All proceeds in aid of Friends of the Peak District.

Admission: £7.50 (concessions: £6.00).
