    Saturday 6 April 2019 7.30pm in St Michael's, Mount Dinham, Exeter

    Allegri Miserere, Poulenc Litanies à la Vierge Noire, Barber Agnus Dei, Levine Morning Prayer from Prayers for Mankind, Scarlatti Stabat Mater

    Peter Adcock organ

    Nigel Perrin conductor

    The sorrows and suffering of Mary, mother of Christ, are the inspiration for our Easter concert programme. Allegri’s Miserere is a penitential psalm for the Tenebrae services before Easter.
    Poulenc’s Litanies à la Vierge Noire were inspired by a pilgrimage to the shrine of the Black Virgin of Rocamadour. Barber’s Agnus Dei, his own choral arrangement of the Adagio for Strings, is followed by Alexander Levine’s Morning Prayer, celebrating the life of a Russian Orthodox priest, assassinated for his beliefs.
    The concert ends with Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater, his setting of the 13th century hymn to the mother of Christ, as she stands at the foot of the cross, beholding her son’s crucifixion.

  •    Vivaldi Gloria and Mozart Mass, Saturday 13 July 2019 Open or Close

    Saturday 13 July 7.30pm in Exeter Cathedral

    Vivaldi Gloria in D and Mozart Mass in C minor

    with Southern Sinfonia

    Nigel Perrin conductor

    Sponsored by the Bryan Foster Charitable Trust

    Our summer concert features two of the great masterworks in the choral repertoire.
    Vivaldi’s Gloria in D (RV589), in its combination of exuberant brilliance with moments of sadness and contemplation, is a firm favourite. Highly theatrical, it buzzes with bold contrasts and
    amazing sounds.
    Mozart’s Mass in C Minor (K427) stands alongside his perhaps more famous Requiem as one of the best-loved and greatest works of sacred choral music. The music has been described as having ‘a breathtaking sense of personal utterance’ and some have suggested that it was never completed, as Mozart did not know how to finish a score ‘already beyond perfection.’
