On Saturday 14th May 2016 join Chester Music Society Choir as they present a relaxing evening of Chorales for a Spring Evening featuring Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, Pergolesi’s Magnificat, Mozart’s Spätzenmesse and Haydn’s Insanae et vanae curae in the peaceful surroundings of Chester Cathedral.
Morten Lauridsen is one of America’s best loved modern composers. Lux aeterna was greeted by The Times after its London première as ‘a classic of new American choral writing’.
Mozart’s Sparrow Mass (Spatzenmesse) is short in a simple structure, but festively scored with brass and timpani in addition to four soloists and organ.
Morwen Blythin studied harp with Ceinwen Stuart. Morwen has become a member of the Gorsedd of Bards at the National Eisteddfod and is known as Telynores Glannau Clwyd (Harpist of the Clwyd Coast).
Her programme will include:
Hasslemans’ La Source
Grace Williams’ Hiraeth
David Watkins’ Nocturne & Fire Dance
